Corbin-Michotte 1983 - Saint-Emilion
Label: Slightly stained
Overall condition: Very good
The Corbin-Michotte vineyard has existed since 1726. Four other Saint-Emilion estates bear the name Corbin in Saint-Emilion. All are located near the Pomerol appellation on sandy soils, so there is something to get lost in.
Château Corbin-Michotte has belonged to the Boidron family since 1760. The single-piece vineyard covers just under 14ha. The soils are composed of clayey sands, iron and gravel.
It is for the vinification that the estate stands out from many other Châteaux. The wines are vinified in the old-fashioned way in cement vats, before being aged for 15 months in 70% new barrels.
WUAT's opinion: Corbin-Michotte has not given in to the charms of marketing, no website, the label has hardly ever changed, and the wines are not really vinified to be drunk before a ten years aging or more. A sort of UFO in the Bordeaux landscape that it is always pleasant to discover or rediscover.
