Chateau Grand Corbin Despagne is located in the Saint Emilion appellation, in the Bordeaux wine region, across the Garonne and Dordogne rivers from the city of Bordeaux. It is situated a short distance north of the village Saint Emilion. Chateau Grand Corbin Despagne is today managed by the owner / winemaker Francois Despagne. The vineyards cover some 26 hectares, mainly on sand and clay soil. The grape varieties used are for the most part merlot, with some cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and malbec. The winery is equipped with both stainless steel tanks and concrete vats. All are temperature controlled during the vinification. At harvest the grapes are sorted by hand after having been destemmed, before they are crushed and the fermentation starts.
