Description

The freshness and the balance of a Saint-Emilion Cru Classé

The estate

Château Grand Corbin-Despagne enjoys an ideal location to the north-west of the Saint-Émilion plateau, adjoining the Pomerol appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank.  The estate was founded at the end of the 18th century. This 2022 vintage is the 211th produced by the Despagne family on this estate.

The vineyard

Château Grand Corbin-Despagne 2022 is a Saint-Émilion wine made from 28.82 hectares of vines. The vines are 38 years old on average and are planted on clay-siliceous soils over iron residue and ancient sands over clay. In conversion to biodynamic viticulture, the vineyard has been certified organic since 2013.

Winemaking and ageing

Hand-picked in crates with 5 successive sortings. Plot-by-plot vinification with numerous small pump-overs, délestage and pigeage depending on the batch. Aged in barrels, 50% of which are new, 40% of which are one-wine barrels, and 10% in amphorae.

Blend

Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (24%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (1%).
