This Saint-Emilion classed growth is produced mainly from Merlot, which enjoyed excellent ripening conditions during the summer of 2012. Thanks to its good terroir the wine has a full, round character with enticing aromas of licorice, cinnamon and cherry. Its overall opulence comes from a soft structure, a fundamental richness, and the charms of its abundant flavors.
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.
