Chateau Grand Corbin-Despagne 2023 (En Primeur)

Chateau Grand Corbin-Despagne 2023 (En Primeur)

Ratings: Vinous 92-94 points, William Kelley 90-92 points, Appellation: Saint-Émilion, ClassificationGrand Cru Classé, BackgroundThe Despagne family has been making wine in Saint-Emilion for seven generations. François Despagne took the reins in 1996, and his passion and intelligence have made his family property – a grand cru since the original classification in 1955 – one very much to follow. The estate is near Saint-Emilion’s border with Pomerol. There are 30 hectares of vines on a mix of clay and sandstone soils, but François painstakingly analysed the vineyards and has identified 53 individual plots. He now adapts his viticulture to suit the needs of each parcel. Vines range in age from 40 to 95 years. No herbicides are used, and cultivation is essentially organic.

IN BOND - DELIVERY 2026

Tasting Note

93 Points - Decanter

"Brilliant violet colour, the wine comes from an excellent terroir of siliceous-clay over iron deposits and ancient sands over blue clay. Ageing in 40% new oak, with a pH of 3.68, a balanced wine whose brisk nature is reflected in somewhat high-toned tannins common to the 2023 vintage. I like the palate depth and juiciness. Ends with a medium finish marked by cool blue and blackberry fruit with lift. Cropped at 45hl/ha."

If a bottle is broken on delivery we will also replace or refund it but we do require photographic evidence of the breakage. Equally we can arrange for the bottles to be collected the next time you receive a delivery from us.

Should we be unable to fulfil any part, or all of an order, Perfect Cellar (Beyond the Bottle Ltd) will suggest comparable substitutions. You are free to refuse these suggestions and are eligible for a full refund of relevant parts of the order.

In all instances, Perfect Cellar (Beyond the Bottle Ltd) must be informed of any claim within 24 hours of receipt of delivery by email or telephone. All refunds will be issued after we have received and approved the faulty items and the amount will be re-credited to your account within 30 days.

If the goods have already been dispatched they must be returned to us unopened and undamaged, and Perfect Cellar (Beyond the Bottle Ltd) will not be liable for any costs associated with the original or return delivery. 

No refund can be given when a case has left bond as the value will be affected. Individual bottles of Fine Wine will be considered for refund on a case-by-case basis.
