  • Merlot(80%)  
    It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.
  • Cabernet Franc(20%)  


Chateau Corbin is one of the oldest estates in Saint-Emilion. The fundations of the Chateau date back to the 15th century, and according to the legend, Corbin was the focal point of a stronghold that belonged to the Black Prince. Built in the middle of the 19th century, Corbin was purchased in 1924 by the great-grandparents of the current owners. Since 1999, the estate is managed by Anabelle Cruse-Bardinet, a Bordeaux University oenology graduate, who represents the 4th generation of the family.


The Corbin vineyards stretch uninterrupted over 13 hectares (32 acres) in the commune of Saint-Emilion, bordering the Pomerol appellation. The estate's terroir is made up of two distinct soil types : - ancient sandy soils on iron-clay subsoil, which give the wine its subtlety. - clay soils which bring the wine its power. The duality of the terroir enables Chateau Corbin to produce wines of great complexity.
