About: 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 early 20th centuries 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.
This special wine is made from 100% Merlot and is only produced on a very small scale in certain vintages when the conditions are perfect. Only the best hand picked grapes are aged in 100% French barrels which gives rise to exceptional fruit concentrations and tannins.
Tasting Notes: Intense red colour, aromas of ripe black fruits, violets and elegant with fine oak. Haute couture wine with a very beautiful substance and a lot of amplitude. The black fruit and violet continue on the palate which is marked by spices and ends with notes of mocha. Tannins are elegant and fine. A wine to keep but also very pleasant to drink now.
