Château Carbonnieux 2016

A dense and precise Pessac-Léognan red wine

The estate

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

The vineyard

A benchmark among Pessac-Léognan wines, Château 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 ageing

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%).

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.
