Chateau Grand Corbin is one of the oldest estates in Saint-Emilion, dating back to the 15th century. The beautiful chateau was constructed in the 1800s. In the late 1990s, Anabelle Cruse and her sisters purchased the shares of Chateau Grand Corbin from the other family shareholders and took over complete ownership of the 15.5-hectare estate. In December 2010, the estate was purchased by the Groupe SMABTP, who combined it in 2012 with the vineyards of Chateau Haut Corbin and Chateau Le Jurat to form a new 24.5-hectare estate under the Grand Corbin name.

Relatively light in this cooler vintage; made for relatively early-enjoyment, with accessible red-berry aromas and earthy undertones. Black fruit comes through on the palate, along with wood-spice; classic austerity on the finish.

Perfect with meaty pasta dishes, or lamb meatball with tomato sauce.

A beautiful wine, the first vintage produced under the new owners, with Hubert de Bouard (owner of Chateau Angelus) as Consultant Oenologist.
