Winemaker Notes

The 2018 red has an optimal level of maturity for all the Cabernet Sauvignon batches. The wine has a deep purple color with tintsof ruby. In the nose the fruity flavour dominates the woody flavour with wonderful blueberry notes thank to the ripeness of the Merlotsand the nice strength of the Cabernet Sauvignon with its smoky hints is easily recognized. On the palate the attack is unctuous, full,powerful with a slightly woody note without the astringency or hardness of tannins, this wine needs to reach its best through aging but it certainly promises to be a great wine.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 96
Wine Spectator

A dense, dark red, with fig, blackberry and black currant reduction notes forming the core, layered liberally with tar, espresso and loam accents through the muscular finish.

Barrel Sample: 93-96

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
The velvet tannins and spicy, smoky character of this wine reveals both its ripeness and its fine structure. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine is dense with black fruits that are lifted by attractive acidity.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
D 94
Decanter

Right off the first nose you just want to sink right into this wine. It's a clear success in this vintage: delicious, with a great texture and a slight bitterness on the finish perfectly balanced by the sweet ripeness of the fruit. Thoroughly enjoyable. 40% new oak. 33hl/ha. Drinking Window 2028 - 2040. Barrel Sample: 94

JS 93
James Suckling

A pretty wine this year with a savory and earthy undertone to the ripe and juicy fruit. Medium body, round tannins and a juicy finish.

Barrel Sample: 92-93

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Carbonnieux leaps from the glass with vibrant notes of baked blackberries, warm cassis, preserved plum and lavender with touches of Indian spices, forest floor and dried sage. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, the generous fruit has loads of bright, vibrant sparks plus a great line of freshness, finishing mineral tinged.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

Chateau Carbonnieux, France
Chateau Carbonnieux Winery Image
The history of Carbonnieux goes back a very long way, and records show that wine was made there at least as early as the 12th century. Benedictine monks from Sainte-Croix abbey in Bordeaux replanted and renovated the estate in the 18th century. They took advantage of the exceptionally pale, clear color of the white wine to label it as "Carbonnieux mineral water", which they then proceeded to ship to the sultan of Turkey.

Marc Perrin acquired and restored the chateau in 1956. His son, Antony, currently manages the estate. The gravelly soil at Carbonnieux is perfectly drained thanks to the Eau Blanche stream that carries away any excess water. The 85 hectares of vines are evenly divided between red and white wine varieties. The white wine is fermented and aged in barrel for 10 months. The red wine is aged for 15 to 18 months in barrel, depending on the quality and characteristics of the vintage.
