The French wine estate is located in Saint-Émilion in the wine-growing region of Bordeaux. Five estates with the Corbin part of the name, which are close together today, once belonged to a cohesive estate whose origins date back to the 15th century. According to legend, the area bordering Pomerol once belonged to Edward of Woodstock (1330-1376), Prince of Wales and known as the "Black Prince". Today, it is owned by the seventh generation of the Despagne family, whose winegrowing history goes back to the 17th century. The estate is classified as Grand Cru Classé. The vineyards cover 24 hectares and are planted with Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (24%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (1%). The long-lived red wine matures for 18 months in partly new barriques. The second wine is called "Petit Corbin-Despagne".

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
