Château Corbin

Overlooking both Cheval Blanc and Pétrus, this is a beautifully located, family owned 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. Jacques Rambaud took over from his father in 2005.

Tasting Notes

This is the first vintage that Jacques Rambeaud has introduced Malbec into the blend. Aged in 60% old barrels and 40% in tank. This is a fabulous, rich Corbin packed with black fruits, over a rich underlay of stewed prunes and ripe plums. The tannin structure is very impressive, ripe but sturdy, and the finish impressive. Undoubtedly one of the best valued wines in our 2020 En Primeur offering.
