Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru Classe
Alcohol 13,0 %
Chateau Corbin is one of the oldest domains in St. Emilion and is in hands of the Cruse family since 1924. From 1999, this property is managed by Mrs Anabelle Cruse-Bardinet, a graduate oenologist at the Bordeaux University. The terroir of 13ha has 2 types: a part of sand with a clay-iron subsoil which gives finesse to the wine, and another part of clay soil (that borders Pomerol) that gives power to the wine. This diversity gives a nice complexity to the wine. Only the grapes of the best parcels and the oldest vines go into the first wine (75%), the rest goes into the second wine. Mrs. Anabelle Cruse vinifies a beautiful wine with passion and knowledge.
