Château Corbin-Michotte

The estate is located in Saint-Emilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). Five of today's closely spaced estates with the Corbin name once belonged to an estate that dates back to the 15th century. According to legend, the area adjacent to Pomerol once belonged to the Prince of Wales and Edward von Woodstock (1330-1376), known as the "Black Prince". The estate in question has been owned by Jean Noël Boidron since 1959. The company, formerly classified as "Grand Cru Classé", was declassified 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 in new barriques for 12 to 18 months. The second wine is called "Les Abeilles".
