Château Corbin-Michotte

The winery is located in Saint-Emilion in the same area (Bordeaux). Five today closely spaced goods with the name part Corbin belonged once to a possession, whose origin dates back to the 15th century. Legend has it that the area adjoining Pomerol once belonged to the Prince of Wales and Edward von Woodstock (1330-1376) referred to as the "Black Prince". Since 1959, the estate has been owned by Jean Noël Boidron. The formerly classified as "Grand Cru Classé" operation was outclassed in 2012. The vineyards cover seven hectares and are planted with the varieties Merlot (65%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The long-lived red wine is aged 12 to 18 months in new barriques. The second wine is called "Les Abeilles".
