Chateau de Carbonneau is a family run estate comprising 50 hectares of wines meticulously tended by Wilfrid and Jacquie Franc de Ferriere since 1992. During the 19th and after the turn of the 20th century both red and sweet white wines were produced at the Chateau de Carbonneau. At the time the Grand Larousse considered Chateau de Carbonneau to be among the better producers of Bordeaux. After the economic crisis of the 1930 however the grapes harvested at Carbonneau were vinified and aged at the newly-founded Cave Cooperative de Gensac. It was not until 1996 that Wilfried and Jacquie Franc de Ferriere re-established Chateau de Carbonneau in its own right and the wines are now vinified and aged in the Chateau with the assistance of the oenological laboratory of Soussac. The Cuvee Classique is a blend of 40% Merlot and 60% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for one year in stainless steel vats. This unleashes smooth tannins and blackberry and spiced bramble fruit. chateau-carbonneau.com
