Château Grand Corbin-Despagne

The winery is located in Saint-Emilion in the same area (Bordeaux). Five today closely spaced goods with the name part 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 owner is the seventh generation of the Despagne family, whose history dates back to the 17th century. The farm is classified as "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover 24 hectares of vines with Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (23%), Cabernet Sauvignon (1%) and Malbec (1%). The long-lived red wine matures for 18 months in some new oak barrels. The second wine is called "Petit Corbin-Despagne".
