Château Grand Corbin

The estate is located in Saint-Emilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). Five closely spaced estates with the Corbin name once belonged to one property 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 business, owned by the Giraud family, was sold to the insurance group SMABTP in 2010 and merged with the Château Le Jurat. In 2012 it merged with the sister winery, which also belongs to SMABTP Château Haut-Corbin, the classification of Château Haut-Corbin became obsolete. The expanded company was classified as a "Grand Cru Classé" in 2012. The vineyards now cover 28.5 hectares of vineyards and are planted with Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The red wine matures in 50% new barriques for 12 months and is without filtration bottled. Around 150,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
