Thanks to the skills and expertise of our experienced team, the domaine’s most recent vintages confirm the excellent progress we have made in both the vineyards and the cellars.
The wines offer silky smooth tannins and aromas of truffle, discreet oak and a touch of mocha on the nose. They are characterised by their freshness, elegance and purity. The blue clay lends the wines their structure, density and excellent potential for cellar-ageing.
The delicate ones
These are mainly the 2013 and 2014 vintages, supple and feminine wines, ready to drink: the nose is discreet, the tannins are silky, these are lunchtime wines, perfect for enjoying with an escalope.
The great classics
These are mainly the 2005, 2010 and 2016 vintages, highly reputed vintages in Bordeaux, with a lovely chewy character, well contained power and ripe fruit aromas for the 2005, vanilla and coffee for the 2010. Balance, freshness and persistence best describe these exceptional wines that show real cellar-ageing potential, particularly the 2016.
The show off
These are mainly the 2001, 2009 and 2015 vintages, aesthetic, refined wines that favour elegance before all. The appearance is both dark and bright, like an evening gown, the aromas range from cherry (on the nose) to raspberry (on the finish), passing through a chocolatey softness. Wine experts Bettane et Desseauve made the following comment on the 2009 vintage in their Guide des Vins de France: "Well-made wine, fresh and supple, with a full body, nice, smooth tannins and lovely light fruit".
Les Charmes de Grand Corbin
The grapes that go into "Les Charmes de Grand Corbin" come mainly from an 8-hectare vineyard located on the periphery of Château Grand Corbin.
With vines aged 50 years on average, the wine goes beyond the simple concept of a "2nd wine" as it attains the complexity level of a cru located in the heart of the "Corbin" lieu-dit, not far from the village of Pomerol.
