Château Corbin is one of the oldest estates in Saint-Émilion. The foundations of the Château date back to the 15th century when (according to legend) the site was the centre of a stronghold that belonged to the Black Prince, an exceptional English military leader who launched successful campaigns into France.

The estate as it stands today was built in the 19th century. Corbin was purchased in 1924 by the great-grandparents of the current owners. Since 1999, the estate has been managed by Anabelle Cruse-Bardinet, an enologist who represents the 4th generation of the family.

The Corbin vineyards border the Pomeral appellation, stretching over 32 contiguous acres. The terroir here covers two of Saint-Émilion’s distinct soil types: dense clay, which produces wines of power; and iron-clay layered under ancient sandy soil, which produces subtler, gentler wines. The plantings, 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, are tended using environmentally-friendly practices. Yields are kept low, and only  fruit from the best plots and the oldest vines are used to make Château Corbin.

Grapes are hand-harvested plot-by-plot and sorted three times. De-stemmed berries are vinified by plot in concrete vats, macerated on skins for three to four weeks, then aged in French oak barrels for 16 to 17 months.

“For a long time this 2012 vintage was more flattering than the 2011 and it is still very attractive, with a smoky edge from the first nose, followed by welcoming red fruit that is very enjoyable. Far less reserved than the 2011, but it may not last as long. 2018 – 2022”

“Proprietress Annabelle Cruse-Bardinet oversees the winemaking at this excellent estate on the Pomerol-St.-Emilion border. Ruby/purple in color and nearly opaque, the wine has concentrated notes of crème de cassis, black cherry and licorice as well as a hint of truffle. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and pure, this is an impressive, outstanding St.-Emilion to drink young or over the next 10-12 years. Her final blend in 2012 was 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.”
