Marks and reviews
A Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Chateau Grand Corbin was founded in the 19th century. This great right-bank estate has successfully revived its prestigious past. Managed by Philippe Dambrine, Chateau Grand Corbin is one of the top estates in the appellation.
Chateau Grand Corbin 2021 is a Saint-Emilion wine that is made from a 28.5-hectare vineyard. The 40-year-old vines are planted on a silica soil upon a bed of blue clay.
Marked by an unstable climate, 2021 is a winemakers’ vintage which, thanks to the team's meticulous work carried out throughout the vegetative cycle as well as during the vinification process, has given rise to a unique wine that exudes finesse and freshness.
Hand-picked from September 27th to October 5th. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (40% new, 40% second-fill and 20% third-fill).
Merlot (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).
Bright, the nose exudes fruity (fresh red fruits) and floral (violet) fragrances.
Fresh and well-balanced, the palate is persistent, smooth and precise.
