A dense and precise Pessac-Leognan red wine

The estate

Chateau Carbonnieux was founded in the 13th century by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of Sainte-Croix. Chateau Carbonnieux is located in the Pessac-Leognan appellation and is one of the oldest chateaux in Bordeaux. In 1956, Marc Perrin acquired the chateau, which became a Classified Growth in 1959, for both its red and white wines.

The vineyard

A benchmark among Pessac-Leognan wines, Chateau Carbonnieux watches over a 52-hectare terroir planted with red grape varieties. The vineyards are divided into 119 separate plots and spread over a tapestry of soils ranging from clay-limestone to Günzian gravel.

Vinification and aging

The wine is aged in Bordeaux barrels (30% of which are new wood) for 15 to 18 months depending on the vintage.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (50%)

Merlot (45%)

Cabernet Franc (4%)

Petit Verdot (1%).
