Chateau Saint Andre Corbin is located in Bordeaux’s smallest appellation just north of the village of Saint Emilion. Both the estate and vineyards date to the Gallo-Roman epoch. Letters from the Roman Consul and poet Ausonius to Rome indicate that wine from this estate was served at Julius Cesar’s table in the 4th century. Archaeological evidence suggests that the current chateau is built over the original Ausonius Villa. (The famous Chateau Ausone did not exist prior to the 18th century.) Extensive archaeological excavations at Chateau Saint Andre Corbin have resulted in spectacular discoveries, including an intact Venus, which is in the Museum of Aquitaine in Bordeaux, and an intact Diana, which now resides in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
St. Andre Corbin is owned by the dynamic Saby family, who has been making wine on the right bank for 9 generations. Today, brothers Jean-Philippe and Jean-Christophe Saby, both of whom are experienced oenologists and agricultural engineers, own and manage the estate as well as numerous other family-owned chateaux in the St. Emilion region of Bordeaux.
