Winemaker Notes

The vineyard for Chateau Carbonnieux's white wine is situated on clay-limestone slopes which support the region's famous Garonnaise gravel. These rare and respected terroirs produce exceptional white wines whose superior character has been recognized for centuries. When young, Carbonnieux's white wine charms with its freshness, its purity and its fruity, floral aromatic intensity. When mature, it develops notes of dried and preserved fruit which offer numerous opportunities for satisfying food matches.

Blend: 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon

Wine Enthusiast

This wine has a wonderful citrus character, fresh lemons and limes going with the mineral texture. It is crisp while also structured, bright with acidity and zesty with lemon and orange. The aftertaste is herbal, crisp and bright. Drink from 2022. Top 100 Cellar Selection

The white from Carbonnieux is the 2015 Château Carbonnieux Blanc and is based on 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon. It’s a winner offering intense notes of lime peel, white grapefruit, and vibrant minerality to go with clean, crisp, racy yet beautifully balanced style on the palate. This terrific white can be drunk with incredible pleasure today or cellared for a decade or more.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Carbonnieux 2015 Blanc opens with scents of white grapefruit, lemon peel and fresh pears with touches of dill seed, white pepper, musk perfume and crushed rocks. Light to medium-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully racy backbone of refreshing acidity cutting through the intense citrus and mineral flavors, finishing on an herbal note.

James Suckling
Aromas of stones, limestone and sliced pears follow through to a full body and tight and fruity flavors. Focused with an oyster-shell and cooked-apple aftertaste.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Fresh and open, with a lime pith note giving the mix of verbena, melon rind and tarragon flavors good cut.
Barrel Smaple: 89-92

Decanter
Subtle lightness and evident brightness. The gentle and slow pressing using inert gas and cold clarification certainly contribute to the 80% Sauvignon Blanc dominated freshness in the blend. The wine conveys both succulent citrus and white stone fruit notes and the finish has lift. Although not quite as full bodied as Château La Louvière, for example, a wine of excellent quality for the price, which comes as no surprise to people who know this estate.

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.

Pessac-Leognan Wine

Bordeaux, France

Recognized for its superior reds as well as whites, Pessac-Léognan on the Left Bank claims classified growths for both—making it quite unique in comparison to its neighboring Médoc properties.

Pessac’s Chateau Haut-Brion, the only first growth located outside of the Médoc, is said to have been the first to conceptualize fine red wine in Bordeaux back in the late 1600s. The estate, along with its high-esteemed neighbors, La Mission Haut-Brion, Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pique-Caillou and Chateau Pape-Clément are today all but enveloped by the city of Bordeaux. The rest of the vineyards of Pessac-Léognan are in clearings of heavily forested area or abutting dense suburbs.

Arid sand and gravel on top of clay and limestone make the area unique and conducive to growing Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc as well as the grapes in the usual Left Bank red recipe: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and miniscule percentages of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The best reds will show great force and finesse with inky blue and black fruit, mushroom, forest, tobacco, iodine and a smooth and intriguing texture.

Its best whites show complexity, longevity and no lack of exotic twists on citrus, tropical and stone fruit with pronounced floral and spice characteristics.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
