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

  • Château Millegrand Minervois Fut de Chene 2008

    Snoothrank:

    For $14 this is perfectly respectable Languedoc wine. Nice nose with blueberry aromas. Starts a little sweet, but has a nice long, bitter, astringent finish. Some nice, even blueberry flavors but lacking a little something. A little too much on the bitter side. Definitely benefited from some time to breathe and open up, but I think the Carignan ...

    Wine review by vg822


  •  There are certain wine appellations that are cursed by thriving tourism, and the sunny, Mediterranean region of Provence is one of them. Typically, quality goes to the wayside when you have a steady, reliable market for whatever wine made, whether good or not. Moreover, the region is really, really sunny (I think I said that already), so this i... Read More
