Chateau Grand Corbin Manuel, Saint Emilion Grand Cru, 2016
The Chateau has been an integral part of the estate of Grand Corbin, but during the 18th century it appeared under the name of “La Grande Metairie”.
Then, in 1965, Pierre Manuel became the new owner, and the Chateau was renamed “Grand Corbin Manuel.”
As a fact, Yseult de Gaye, daughter of the owner of the property, cultivates a little more than 7 acres of vines on sand and clay.
This land provides a style of wine that is both persistent and elegant, reflecting its terroir well with nice tannins and a fruity, floral touch.
Grape Variety: 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: The 2016 Grand Corbin Manuel has a gorgeous bouquet of vibrant red cherry and blackcurrant notes with just a hint of vanilla from the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, harmonious.

A dense red with plenty of fruit and ripe tannins. Medium to full body and a stone, mineral finish. Shows depth.
Food Pairing Suggestion: A very elegant wine to enjoy with noble meat such as turkey, veal, Duck or Beef. A great companions with a Cheese platter.
