Winemaker Notes

Château Carbonnieux red has for centuries been a great classic from the region of Bordeaux. The tannins are well balanced and silky in harmony with red fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry…) and reveal toasted notes from ageing in the finest quality French oak barrels.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Pair this wine alongside your favorite grilled or roasted meat, swordfish, tuna, and cheeses.

The Barrel Sample for this wine is above 14% ABV.

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast

A tight and mineral driven wine, this is cool and crisp in feel. Its green fruits, herbal edge and mineral texture are all meld with the grapefruit-laden acidity and structured finish. It's a fine wine that will need plenty of time.

Barrel Sample: 94-96

V 94
Vinous

The 2019 Carbonnieux was picked 18 September to 10 October at 45hl/ha, matured in 40% new oak. It has an expressive bouquet with lively blackberry, bilberry and brown spices, all well defined and "natural". The palate is silky smooth on the entry with plush black fruit laced with black pepper and allspice, a touch of clove towards the seductive finish. This is a more sensual Carbonnieux than I am accustomed to. Maybe I hope it will develop more grip, but it certainly will appeal to those seeking a plush Pessac-Léognan. I wonder about its longevity vis-a-vis its peers. Tasted three times, later samples showing a little more charm and flesh. - Neal Martin

Barrel Score: 92-94

James Suckling

This is really well done with blackberries, chocolate and spice. Hints of wet earth. It’s full and flavorful. Very impressive second wine.

Barrel Sample: 92-93

Jeb Dunnuck

The red 2019 Château Carbonnieux also showed nicely, with a deep plum/purple color as well as outstanding notes of red and black fruits, chocolate, tobacco, and damp earth. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and textured, it has loads of potential and is well worth checking out.

Barrel Sample: 91-93

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Carbonnieux was harvested from the 18th of September to the 10th of October. Yields were 45 hectoliters per hectare this year. The alcohol came in at 14.5% with a pH of 3.69. It is being aged in French oak barrels, 40% new, for an anticipated 12-15 months. Deep garnet-purple in color, it prances out of the glass with invigorating scents of fresh redcurrants, black cherries and cassis with touches of bay leaves, pencil shavings and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has impressive vivacity with loads of crunchy black fruits and a refreshing line, framed by grainy tannins, finishing with a minty lift.

Barrel Score: 91-93

D 92
Decanter

Strong black pepper, cloves, saffron and smoked cedar notes, adding up to spicy fruit and oak influence. A little overpowering on the attack but it settles down and this has excellent personality and hold. Good stuff. 5% Cabernet Franc completes the blend.

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.
