Editorial Reviews for Château Carbonnieux Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan
Red and fruity on the nose with a nice leafy Cabernet Franc edge that shows sweet herbs, pipe tobacco and some astringent soil tones. A touch sweet early on the palate, with red plummy fruit that is soft and front loaded leading to a crisp, fairly tannic finish of decent length with a red fruity finale 88pts
Classic, but dated style of a white with skin contact. It starts with a complex yeasty, lemon peel nose and just a hint of oak, which is quite attractive. However, in the mouth the dry, mineral balance and the more that moderate tannins from skin contact and the barrel just you the classic but not so appealing mouthful of ashes. It does work with food but I wish the tannin was a bit more subdued.
Assez consistant, un peu volumineux, équilibre, structure, positivement surpris (en première dégustation, il sortait "plat"... mauvais échantillon ?)

Beautiful pale golden yellow color. Crisp but not overly dry. Citrus notes with good acidity. Long finish. Very nice. Not too much oak. Distinctively different.
Great age - chocolate, leather. Tannins are very soft and well integrated. Great cabernet structure with decent fruit (baked prunes) still.

A tangy mix of damson plum, loganberry and cherry pit notes, with lightly taut structure framing the finish.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Carbonnieux 6000ml
There is a touch of sur-maturite on the nose although the delineation is commendable and it seems to mellow in the glass, that over-ripeness diminishing. The palate is full-bodied and dominated by the tannins that seem to be fully ripe, whilst the fi... Neal Martins Wine Journal. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Carbonnieux 750ml
35% sauvignon blanc, 35% semillon. 30% new oak. Planted to gravel on top of clay soils. A loaded nose offers crushed sea shells, high-toned citrus notes, and an underlying creaminess. On the palate, this displays upfront green apple and bright citrus... Geoffrey Binder. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Carbonnieux Blanc 750ml

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 colour 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 château 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.
