Grand Cru Classé des Grave
For centuries, Château Carbonnieux red has been a great classic from Bordeaux. Resulting from an exquisite blending of grape varieties from this region, coming out strong amidst the year marked by whims of the weather: alternating the rainy times and dry moments. Vigorous vine tamed in the end providing a red classic.
Made from a mixture of modern and traditional vinification, careful extraction to preserve the roundness of the wine and the mineral features of the soil. The tannins are well balanced and silky in harmony with red berries, revealing toasted notes from being aged in the finest quality French oak barrels. Only the very best batches tasted are selected for the final blending of Château Carbonnieux red wines.
