Château Haut-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 vineyards covered six hectares of vines with the varieties Merlot (65%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%). The red wine was aged in half new barriques for 12 to 14 months. The property was or is owned by the insurance group SMABTP. The establishment was classified as a "Grand Cru Classé" in 2006. In 2012 he became a sister winery, which also belongs to SMABTP Château Grand Corbin merged, thus the classification of Château Haut-Corbin became obsolete.
