Château Corbin was established in 1600 and is one of the older in the appellation. It was a large estate comprising 480 hectares which, at the time of the French Revolution, was divided into different estates. Château Corbin now comprises 23 hectares; 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Château Corbin is one of the oldest estates of Saint-Emilion. Since 1924, Château Corbin has been in the hands of the same family. Passed down from generation to generation by female heirs, it is today the property of Anabelle Cruse, the fourth generation, and her husband Sébastien Bardinet.

Having trained as an oenologist and managed the estate since 1999, Anabelle Cruse Bardinet has been the owner of the property since 2007. During all these years she has worked consistently on the improvement and enhancement of the estate and its wines, replanting plots, restructuring the site and creating a new plot-by-plot managed vat room. The challenges have been great, but Anabelle has risen to them with rigour and passionate commitment, calling on all her savoir-faire.
The style and precision of Corbin’s wines have progressed in spectacular fashion, while Anabelle has uncompromisingly followed her intuition and beliefs: harvesting the grapes at optimal ripeness to produce fine, elegant wines that display both power and delicacy, while maintaining freshness of fruit flavour and aromatic purity. Each decision she makes is geared towards achieving excellence in her wines while maintaining the utmost respect for the terroir.

Chateau Corbin 2018

$93.60
A dark and intense red colour, with fine and subtle aromas with intense notes of licorice and raspberry. On the palate, tasty with tension, the wine develops fleshy on a nice fruity structure for a long finish. "Coming from the northwestern part of Saint-Emilion, not far from the border of Pomerol, the 2018 Château Corbin is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was brought up in 50% new French oak. This rockingly good Saint-Emilion has a perfumed nose of black raspberries, blackberries, toasted spice, dried flowers, and loamy earth. Much more refined and elegant now from bottle than barrel, it’s medium to fullbodied and has some classic Saint-Emilion chalky minerality, quality tannins, and a great finish. This is well worth seeking out, and while it already offers pleasure, it’s going to benefit from just 3-4 years of bottle age and drink brilliantly for 10-15 years." - Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Critic

Chateau Corbin 2016

$95.40
A deep ruby with purple reflections. On the nose, red and black fruits are very present with notes of wood and vanilla from the aging process. On the palate, powerful yet round, this wine is seductive and full-bodied bouquet. Fruit forward with plenty of fresh crunchy red fruit notes.
