Estate::

Located on the Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion appellation, the property of Saint-André Corbin was taken over by the SABY familly at the end of a tenancy (insured for 18 years by the Jean-Pierre Moueix winery).
The particularity of its terroir lies in its extreme homogeneity. The soil is clay-limestone on limestone with asterias. The vineyard is facing south, southwest, facing Saint-Emilion. This situation ensures ideal sunshine and perfect drainage.

taste::

Firm tannins, dense blackberry flavors and concentration. Ripe Merlot dominates the blend, giving both structure and fruit.
