Throughout the different eras in the estate’s history, the place has never ceased to evolve nor stood still. It today boasts a fabulous heritage built up over centuries, while its architectural beauty has today been enhanced by renovation work that blends modern features harmoniously with the historical.
Neo-classical in style and adjoining the original part of the property, the château was built in the 18th century on the orders of the estate’s owners of that time.
Fabulous vestiges of the 16th century part can still be seen at Corbin: a tower containing a stone spiral staircase, an attractive dovecote, an enchanting guest house as well as farm buildings and even a tasting room dating back to the same period.
The origins of Corbin however date from the 15th century. Legend has it that these lands once belonged to the Black Prince, who fought the French at the beginning of the 100 Years War.
While Château Corbin was at the heart of one of the largest seigneuries of Saint-Emilion, it was also the seat of dynamic, vibrant architecture that moved with the times, a feature that could also describe the production of the estate’s wines.
