Chateau Grand-Corbin-Despagne

Chateau Grand-Corbin-Despagne

Château Grand-Corbin-Despagne is still family owned and run and today is now run by François Despagne. The Despagne family has lived in or around St-Emilion since 1620 or earlier. The first plots of Grand-Corbin-Despagne were bought in 1812 and there are now 30 hectares of vineyards, which are located just nest to the Pomerol border in the northern part of the appellation.

The wine is typically a blend of Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The grapes are fermented in a combination of temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete vats. The wines are then matured in oak barrels (40% new) for 12- 15 months. Described as "a property to watch since the late 90s" by Robert Parker this estate is now producing lush concentrated St Emilions that in these days of vinuous inflation still offer excellent value for money.
