Château Grand Corbin

The winery is located in Saint-Emilion in the same area (Bordeaux). Five densely packed estates with the name Corbin once belonged to a related property whose origin goes 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". The company owned by the Giraud family was sold in 2010 to the insurance group SMABTP and merged with the Château Le Jurat. In 2012, the merger with the sister company also owned by SMABTP took place Château Haut-Corbin, so that the classification of Château Haut-Corbin was obsolete. The extended operation was classified in 2012 as "Grand Cru Classé". The vineyards now cover 28.5 hectares and are planted with Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The red wine is aged for 12 months in 50% new barriques and is without filtration bottled. Every year around 150,000 bottles of wine are produced.
