Cru Bourgeois and one of the top values of Saint-Estephe, the Chateau Saint-Pierre de Corbian 2020 could be the best $24.99 Bordeaux of the year! Situated at the northern end of the Haut-Medoc region on the gravelly western shores of the Gironde, Saint-Estephe is separated from its famous neighbor Pauillac only by a stream, yet there are significant differences between them. Known for their rich color, deep flavor and longevity, the wines of Saint-Estephe tend to be more fruit forward with ripe levels of tannin and higher acidity. The 2020 Chateau Saint-Pierre de Corbian showcases aromas of raspberry coulis and boysenberries, as the medium-bodied palate is delicately styled, with soft tannins and enough freshness to support the elegant fruit. Drink now with a decant, or hold for 15+ years. Amazing value!
"The 2020 Saint-Pierre de Corbian is magnificent. Rich, potent and explosive, it dazzles with its aromatic intensity, complexity and overall character. Inky dark fruit, gravel, scorched earth, licorice, dried flowers and sage saturate the palate. This explosive Saint-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois has a ton to offer. I loved it. It is a huge sleeper for the year." Antonio Galloni, 92-94 Points
