An exceptionally well-structured red wine from Pessac-Leognan

Chateau Carbonnieux is a Grand Cru from the Pessac-Leognan appellation. This red wine is produced on a 52 hectare vineyard, where reasoned agriculture is practiced. The aging is done in Bordeaux barrels (30% are new), for 15-18 months depending on the vintage. 2016 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.

Chateau Carbonnieux 2016 has an intense purple-red color due to the concentration of the grapes. It reveals a beautiful texture in the mouth and frank aromatic expressions. This racy and full-bodied wine that is not aggressive but beautifully round and elegant.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Carbonnieux reveals warm black and red plums, blackcurrants and cigar box scents with a waft of crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, fine-grained and with great freshness, it delivers a minerally finish.
