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

"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
