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 Rosé Blend Bordeaux Rosé Rosé 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Compared to the L´Orangerie from 2005 (wich was outstanding in price/value) this wine is comparably flat. It has a similar fruitiness but without any strength and body. Read More

  • Everyone has a favorite "just for fun wine"--one that you drink because it just tastes good. These fun wines are great to fall back on for parties or just enjoying at the end of the day. I had a great "fun" wine this weekend from Debonne Vineyards (Madison, OH) , Razzberry Riesling. The Raspberry brought out the flavors of the Riesling nicely an... Read More

  • I am just starting to explore French reds.The few Cotes du Rhones that I have tried all seem to be more appealing the second day after having been opened. Maybe I need to try some older vintages that have had a chance to age? So far, most of these examples have been from 2007 and they seem to be overly tart (tannic?).I just tried a Bordeaux fo...

  • Château Mont Milan Corbières Ac 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A date in a glass. Not a get-to-know-you outing, but pure sweet dried fruit. A bit of cinnamon/vanilla sweet spice and then much-needed mint on the end to stop it cloying too much. Read More
