Château Corbin Michotte
Château Corbin Michotte and the Boidron family have a long history in the Bordeaux appellation. The family has been involved in producing wine since 1760; Corbin Michotte is even older, with the vineyard dating to 1726. Château Corbin Michotte is one of five different Saint-Émilion estates with the name Corbin, all located near the Pomerol border on similar terroirs. What separates Château Corbin Michotte from these others is their Bordeaux vineyards are in a single large parcel, uncommon in this area. This Right Bank Bordeaux vineyard with gravelly sand and clay soils is planted with 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
