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. – Description from HeatherV

  • Chateau Carignan Prima 2014

    Snoothrank:

    We do not get Chateau Carignan up this way often, but we should: the 100% Merlot Prima has Fronsac-like subdued rusticity with a deep, fresh cherry bouquet and male-merlot depth, power and finish on the palate. Judicious use of oak adds spice and age-worthiness. Slightly bitter on the back-end, but this comes with youth. 89. Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.This topic is all about value...

Flavors that are fleshy, medicinal Earthy/herbal notes, tea leaf astringency, and a medium body. Smooth finish and on the palate, the alcohol is well hidden and after the swa... Read More

Languedoc is a very large area stretching from the Rhone delta to the Spanish border which got AOC status in the 1980's although viticulture here goes back to before the Romans. Languedoc is responsible for about... Read More

  • Chateau Carignan Cadillac Cotes de Bordeaux 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This wine from the Cadillac Region of the Cotes de Bordeaux is simply stunning for the price and provenance; the secret is not just the 2010 vintage, but is the lower Merlot content (70%) which allows for more backbone. There is a lot of soft oak tannin (will age a further 3-5 years) resting on a bed of rich blackberry and wet loam. Finish is q... Read More
