Château Corbin

Overlooking both Cheval Blanc and Pétrus, 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. Dating back to the 16th century the property has 23ha of vines that surround the Château. Since Jacques Rambaud 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

This château never fails to please. Its positioning is perfect, overlooking both Cheval Blanc and Petrus, but it is very much more affordable! A ripe, raisined bouquet is exceptionally alluring, whilst the palate is rich and succulent and brimming with cassis fruit. The finish is long with and soothing.

Food Matches

Great with rib eye stea and onion rings.
