Château Corbin 2015, Montagne St Emilion

CORB110
Overlooking both Cheval Blanc and Petrus, this is a beautifully located château that produces outstanding, affordable claret. It is one of the oldest properties in Montagne, which in itself is the smallest appellation in the Bordeaux region with only 18 growers. The 2015 vintage has produced a sumptuous, rich and plummy wine, supported by a beautiful ripe tannin structure and graced with a beautiful balance. Outstanding value for money.

Château Corbin

Château Corbin was established in 1600 and is one of the older in the appellation. It was a large estate comprising 480 hectares which, at the time of the French Revolution, was divided into different estates. Château Corbin now comprises 23 hectares; 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Jacques Rambeaud who owns the estate is a fourth generation owner. His great grandfather bought the Corbin estate before the second world war. Since Jacques Rambeaud took over from his father in 2005, he has overhauled the vineyard management and introduced careful oak ageing – 40% of the wine is aged in 1-4 year old oak.

Tasting Notes

"Could be Annabelle Bardinet’s finest. Poised and precise. Really elegant this year. Smooth texture. Fine grain of tannin. Lift and length on the finish." Decanter April 2016
