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.

Purple-ruby. Fragrant aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and minerals. Enters bright and lively, with nicely delineated flavors of black fruits and minerals complicated by a hint of black pepper. This politely styled, impeccably balanced wine shows a... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Carbonnieux 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Soft, silky, incredibly sexy notes of licorice, tobacco leaf, cigar tobacco, cassis, and cherries soar from the glass of this full-bodied Carbonnieux, which seems to have a few extra layers of fruit, glycerin, and depth than usual. The wine has *great fruit, purity, and lots of personality*. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate [60% cab; 30% merlot; a bit of petit verdot and cab franc]
