Petit Corbin-Despagne 2008 Second wine of Château Grand Corbin-Despagne, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux
Petit Corbin Despagne enjoys a deep purplish, red tone. The first scent reveals notes of red berries (dominated by strawberry) and spices. The fruits aromas get stronger with the apparition of black fruits (blackcurrant) notes and light hints of hazelnuts. When tasted, the attack is round at first but evolves into a firmer structure with a great quality of tannins - lengthy with the persistence of the red and black fruits aromas. This wine is already enjoyable now and is best served when decanted 2 to 3 hours before drinking.
