Chateau Carignan 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

Once again, this modest property does not disappoint; the merlot element dominates, to be sure, but there is the deep, cassis element of Cabernet present which lifts the wine to near Cru pretensions. Plenty of chocolate, coffee and black currant here - with a long finish. 90.

Château Carignan is located at Carignan de Bordeaux, 10km to the east of Bordeaux. The estate lies over 150 hectares, 65 of which are planted with vines. The vines lie on south facing clayey-limestone hillsides covered with stony gravel. The dominant grape variety, as for the other right bank Appellations (Saint Emilion and Pomerol), is Merlot. This variety is in its element on the clayey limestone hillsides and offers supple, well-rounded and highly fruity wines. The grapes for the Château Carignan wines are hand harvested, machine harvesting is used for the other wines. Maturing is in 100% new oak casks for the Château Carignan Prima and in one or maximum two wine casks for the Château Carignan. The entire production is estate bottled. Read less

Casa Nuestra continues to produce well made, small production, experimental releases of French and Spanish varietals. This is one of my favorites. Opened up to wonderful nose of blackberries with a slight whiff of bacon (which is never a bad thing). On the palate it came alive with boysenberry, blueberry, spice box, rosemary, dark chocolate and smoke. Went beautifully with grilled lamb chops. Flavors are elegant and restrained. Not too alcoholic. Could probably age nicely for a few years, but is good to go now.

Compared to the L´Orangerie from 2005 (wich was outstanding in price/value) this wine is comparably flat. It has a similar fruitiness but without any strength and body.

"Big and chewy, with loads of blackberry, toasty oak and dark chocolate. This is full, with a rich, powerful palate. Need time to mellow. Best after 2012." JS 88 points

Intensive Nase von schwarzen Beerenfrüchten und roten Johannisbeeren. Im Gaumen süss, dicht, elegant, mit frischer Säure. Ein schöner, jetzt bereits trinkreifer Rotwein der kräftige Mahlzeiten auf?s Beste unterstützt
