This is an immensely rich Corbin, with stewed prunes and ripe plums dominating the palate.

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.
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.
Pair with classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes.
75% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Chateau Corbin is owned and run by Jacques Rambeaud and his family, and sits on a hill looking towards Cheval Blanc and St Emilion - clay and limestone soils with some sand and gravel. Yield is 55HL/Ha, all hand picked and sorted at the winery using density sorting. 40% aged in 300lits oak foudres,60% aged in concrete tanks with 22% new oak most years.
