The estate is located in Saint-Emilion
in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). Five of today's closely spaced estates with the Corbin part of the name once belonged to one property that dates back to the 15th century. According to legend, the area adjacent to Pomerol once belonged to the Prince of Wales and Edward von Woodstock (1330-1376), known as the "Black Prince". The Despagne family is owned by the seventh generation, whose winegrowing history dates back to the 17th century. The establishment is classified as a "Grand Cru Classé", which was last confirmed in 2012. The vineyards cover 24 hectares of vines with Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (23%), Cabernet Sauvignon (1%) and Malbec (1%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 18 months in partly new barriques. The second wine is called "Petit Corbin-Despagne".
