Winemaker Notes

The 2017 red vintage is enhanced by its freshness and rich fruity character such as raspberry and blackcurrant without an excess of maturity. The analyses show an important intensity in color giving a beautiful garnet red. In the mouth, the entry is delicate, the mid-palate is compact and sweet at the same time. All this gives a fine long structured finish. 2017 will be a vintage full of finesse.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator

This packs solid blackberry, red currant and boysenberry fruit paste flavors together, all inlaid with tar and licorice snap notes. A bold brambly edge infuses the finish with grip and energy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2022 through 2035.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

The ripeness of this wine creeps up slowly to reveal swaths of black fruits and a densely tannic core. The wine is layered with acidity that balances the black-currant flavors. The wine will age well. Drink from 2023.

JS 92
James Suckling

This has attractively fresh and ripe, cassis and blackcurrant aromas. The palate has measured shape and a supple, fleshy feel with plenty of depth to the cassis and blueberries. Drink or hold.

The 2017 Château Carbonnieux is also more than a little impressive. This medium-bodied, balanced, elegant red gives up notes of cassis, spring flowers, and classy oak. It’s not massive by any stretch yet excels on its balance and purity.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
D 91
They have controlled the extraction extremely well here, and it has some lovely delicacy on the attack, with firm blackberry and blueberry fruits - the fruit register is on the fresh side but they have handled it with precision and care. It stops a little short, but the aromatics are very clean and elegant, and highly appealing when you give it time to unfurl.

Tim Atkin
Juicy fruity red and black fruit. Rich and with sweet spices. Balanced acidity and tannins. Fruity but appealing and rounded. Good depth and length.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

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.
