Dating from the seventeenth century, Chateau Corbin is one of the oldest properties of Montagne Saint-Emilion. It belonged to the lords of Corbin, the Boyreau family.
Its vineyard is established on a beautiful hilltop exposed to the East, just 4 km away from the village of Saint-Emilion. Spread over 23 hectares in one big plot, it surrounds an ancient Lordship built in 1606.
Since 1779, the Rambeaud family has maintained a passion for working the land and the vine in particular. Purchased in 1948 by the grandfather of Francois Rambeaud (current manager), Chateau Corbin has been family-owned for four generations.
Harvested at maturity in less than 8 days, the grapes are sorted and de-stemmed before entering into natural fermentation. The second (malolactic) fermentation creates a great aging potential. Wine is raised in stainless steel tanks and cement vats with thermal regulation (40%), and in French oak barrels (60%).
