History:

Château Corbin is said to be one of the oldest estates in Saint-Emilion, with château foundations dating back to the 1400s. Today’s edifice was built in the 19th century and purchased by the Giraud family, ascendants of the present owners, in 1924. Following much-needed investment and under the management of fourth-generation Anabelle Cruse-Bardinet, the estate has gained much greater standing. The vineyards are in the far north-west of the commune, bordering the Pomerol appellation.
