Chateau Carbonnieux 2021

A white wine from Pessac-Leognan with a seductive aromatic expression and freshness

The estate

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

The vineyard

Chateau Carbonnieux 2021 is a Pessac-Leognan wine made from a vineyard that extends over a tapestry of soils ranging from clay-limestone to Günzian gravel. 45 hectares are dedicated to white grape varieties. The vines are 30 years old on average. The entire vineyard bears the High Environmental Value level 3 label. In 2021, 25% of the vineyard is managed using organic farming practices.

Vinification and aging

The hand-picked grapes are selected both on the vine and on a sorting table, before undergoing gentle pneumatic pressing and cold settling. Fermentation is carried out in barrels and tuns, before aging in barrels (25% of which are new wood) for around 10 months with stirring.

The blend

This Chateau Carbonnieux 2021 white wine comprises a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (67%) and Semillon (33%).
