Château Corbin Michotte is an estate with a rich pedigree, a fine history and a prime location; very near to Château Petrus and Château Cheval Blanc, on the border of Saint Émilion and Pomerol

In the hands of the Boidron family for the past eight generations, the vineyards have been producing wine since 1760 and were once part of feudal lands held by King Edward III's son, the 'Black Prince'. 

The estate, currently run by Jean Noel and Emmanuel Boidron, is laid at the crossroads between the iconic Château Cheval Blanc in Saint Émilion and the Château Petrus in Pomerol. Thankfully this wine is far more affordable. It has an earthy richness, smoothness and depth that will have fans of world class Saint Émilion Grand Cru queuing up.

Two classic Saint-Émilion wines are made in the traditional way, ie without the use of modern technique and not over wooded an which is a really beautiful of example how Right Bank wine should be. The aromas of the rare and limited vintages of 1999 and 2001 that you get on the nose are in itself worth the experience and these wines will be served at this wine dinner.
