Description

The 1975 Corbin Michotte is a very mature old Bordeaux. There is still plenty of deep, dark fruit richness along with with a mesquite-type smokiness and scorched earth character to maintain interest. The tannins have dried out to a smokey character but the wine is still going strong.

The Corbin Michotte vineyard was created in 1726. Until recently, Jean Noel Boidron was formerly in charge of all the families estates. Jean Noel Boidron is the seventh generation in his family to manage Chateau Corbin Michotte. The 7.1 hectare, Right Bank Bordeaux vineyard of Chateau Corbin Michotte is planted to 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The terroir is sand, gravel, iron, sandy clay soils. The vineyard is in 1 single, parcel, which is not common in the Corbin sector. The vines are close to 35 years of age.

Chateau Corbin Michotte is one of five different St. Emilion estates with the name Corbin. These estates are all located near the Pomerol border on similar, mostly, sandy terroirs. Chateau Corbin Michotte is owned by the Boidron family.
