    Founded in the 13th century, Chateau Carbonnieux is located in the Pessac-Leognan appellation and is one of the oldest wine estates in Bordeaux. In 1956, Marc Perrin acquired the château, which became a Classified Growth in 1959 for its Red and White wines.

The vineyard is certified High Environmental Value 3 and practices a sustainable viticulture.
