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 Carignan Red Bordeaux Blend Premières Côtes de Bordeaux 2009


    Casa Nuestra continues to produce well made, small production, experimental releases of French and Spanish varietals. This is one of my favorites. Opened up to wonderful nose of blackberries with a slight whiff of bacon (which is never a bad thing). On the palate it came alive with boysenberry, blueberry, spice box, rosemary, dark chocolate and ... Read More

  • Château Coussin la Croix du Prieur Rose 2010


    Cinsault (practicing organic) - Funky on the nose with earthy, spicy berry notes framed with spicy herb and ivy. Bright and light in the mouth with a juicy core of acid wrapped in a gentle blanket of wild strawberry fruits that yields to a moderate long melon ring and herb. This is delicious and so well balanced. A lovely rose with a building ... Read More

  • Château Coussin la Croix du Prieur Rose 2010


    Watermelon aromas with a floral hint. The melon flavors carry through to the palate, mixing with some deeper red fruit. Good acidity, refreshing, a bit of tomato. Nice wine. Read More

    Wine review by chooki666

  • I've found that when trying a cheap red or white wine, the whites are always better. I have tried the Concha Y Toro red wines as well as Trader Joe's red wines and they are horrible. But when I've tried cheap white wines, they'ved faired so much better.I haved tried the Trader Joe's Chardonnay and I really liked it, and it's only $2.99.I have al... Read More
