Chateau Grand Corbin Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2016
Proprietary Blends | France
93 POINTS and normally $60! Grand Cru St. Emilion from the possibly-best-ever 2016 vintage for a song! 100-point consulting winemaker Huber De Bouard (Chateau Angelus) has been making these wines since 2006.
Man, our Bordeaux connection came through big time with this classic -- Chateau Grand Corbin. WHAT a score -- we wish we had more!
In a vintage like 2016, you truly get the best of both worlds...harmonious textures and balance, approachability, yet all the stuffing to last for a decade or so. So great to see wine at this level priced like this!
We have about 20 cases to offer today --- while it lasts!
