les charmes de grand corbin - sAINT emilion Grand cru
BORDEAUX | FRANCE
The historic area of Corbin is an ancient land, situated on the northwestern part of the Saint-Emilion plateau bordering Pomerol. Over time and many generations the ancient feudal domain was divided, creating six properties bearing the Corbin name. Since its acquisition the Grand Corbin estate has grown by four hectares, absorbing vines belonging to a neighboring Grand Cru Classé. For its part, the Haut Corbin vineyard has also increased by three hectares coming from Château Le Jurat (belonging to Groupe SMABTP), magnificent parcels containing iron-pan like that in Pomerol... Today, the vineyard today covers 28.5 hectares in one block, with a potential average production of 150,000 bottles per year which positions Grand Corbin as a true brand in the market. Interestingly, joining the two vineyard has not changed the vineyard composition. The percentages for Grand Corbin remain unaltered with 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, proportions which reflect the balance sought by the great estates of Saint-Emilion.
