For the past ten years Philippe Durand has been making impressive investments and improvements at Château ROCHER CORBIN. Just northwest of the town of Montagne, the Château is perfectly situated on the western slope of the Calon mound at the highest point in the area of Montagne Saint-Emilion. The average age of the vines on the 10.5 hectares (25.95 acres) is 45 years. 15% of the vineyard has vines more than 80 years of age and there is one plot with impressive 140 year old vines.

The typical blend of Château ROCHER CORBIN is 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc.

Château ROCHER CORBIN provides deep-colored and concentrated Montagne Saint-Emilion wines. The wine is well structured, full-bodied and viscous on the tongue, with a fleshy, fruity palate, rich aromas and fabulous aging potential for each vintage.
