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 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Cedar-box, cigar, fresh blueberry, a bit of plum and a hint of fresh black earth greet the nose on this one; entry is full of blueberry and plum with decent grip. The finish is medium to long and the taste is delicious. 100% Merlot. A dandy for the price; dense and well-made - very Bordeaux. 90 points. Read More

  • Jeune Rouge Château Musar 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I had never even heard of Lebanese wine when I tried this at Wine Kitchen in Leesburg, VA and boy, oh boy what a surprise! This wine manages to have the aggressive tannins of a big, bad red, yet with incredibly soft, gentle flavors like blueberry and violet. Paired perfectly with gnocchi, spring peas and morel mushrooms thanks to a body that cou... Read More

  • Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

They're planted and watched closely for any early signs of infestation on the land. They monitor the Roses closely and upon early signs of problems, protective measures are taken to make sure the grape vines receive a s...

    Wine review by LAgato


  • Sometimes the wine gods conspire against you. I actually knew something like this was coming. Things had been going too well for too long. I recently thought about the roll I was on, nary a corked bottle in months, and even some suspect oldies had showed well recently, rotted corks and low fills be damned. And then there was this. What should ha... Read More
