Château Carbonneau Sequoia Double Magnum 3 Litre 2020: A Bordeaux Blend for Sharing and Savouring

A Family Tradition: The Legacy of Chateau Carbonneau Sequoia

Nestled in the Libournais region of Bordeaux, Chateau Carbonneau Sequoia boasts a rich history dating back to the 19th century. Under the meticulous care of the Franc de Ferriere family since 1992, the estate's 50 hectares of vines produce exceptional red wines. The Chateau Carbonneau Sequoia Double Magnum 2020 exemplifies this dedication to quality, offering a delightful expression of Bordeaux tradition in a larger format, perfect for sharing with loved ones.

Unveiling the 2020 Chateau Carbonneau Sequoia: A Visual Symphony

Pour yourself a generous glass and take a moment to admire the wine's captivating appearance. A deep purple core with garnet highlights shimmers in the light, hinting at the complexities within. This is a wine that promises a captivating journey for the senses.

Aromatic Tapestry: A Blend of Elegance and Power

On the nose, the Chateau Carbonneau Sequoia 2020 unfolds with remarkable elegance. The initial aromas are dominated by ripe black fruits – think cassis, blackberry, and plum – intertwined with subtle hints of earth and spice. As the wine opens up, intriguing notes of cedarwood and tobacco emerge, adding a touch of sophistication. The influence of oak ageing becomes apparent with whispers of vanilla and cocoa, seamlessly integrated into the overall bouquet. This is a wine that is both expressive and harmonious, showcasing the perfect balance between the inherent fruit character of the grapes and the subtle enhancements from oak maturation.

A Dance on the Palate: Flavourful Depths and Lingering Finish

The first sip of the Chateau Carbonneau Sequoia 2020 reveals a captivating interplay of flavours. The initial burst of ripe fruit from the nose translates beautifully onto the palate, offering a juicy core of black cherry, plum, and damson. The tannins are surprisingly smooth and well-integrated, thanks in part to the use of both French and American oak barrels during ageing. The French oak lends structure and elegance, while the American oak contributes subtle hints of vanilla and spice, enriching the flavour profile without overpowering the fruit. Hints of earth and tobacco linger on the finish, adding further complexity and intrigue. This is a medium-bodied wine with a delightful freshness that makes it incredibly drinkable. The well-balanced acidity ensures a lingering finish, leaving you wanting another sip.
