Clos Albertus Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion
Country of Origin: France
The Saint-Georges vineyard is located to the north of the Saint-Émilion appellation, on the right bank of the Barbanne river. Along with the vineyards of Lussac-Saint-Émilion, Montagne-Saint-Émilion and Puisseguin-SaintÉmilion, it makes up the outer reaches of the Saint-Émilion vineyard. The Corbin estate is now managed by Jacques Rambeau, and has been a family property for four generations. It values dedicated work and respect for the terroir. It has, therefore, decided to commit to ‘reasoned’ viticulture and is HEV-certified (a French certificate acknowledging high environmental value). Clos Albertus is a small 1.5-hectare vineyard in the Saint-Georges-Saint-Emilion appellation, and produces the most premium wine. The property faces south and stands at the foot of hillsides that afford breathtaking views over the town of SaintÉmilion.
