Founded in the 13th century by the Benedictine monks of Sainte-Croix Abbey, Château Carbonnieux is one of the oldest estates in the Bordeaux region. In 1956, Marc Perrin purchased the château, that became a Cru Classé in 1959, for its red and white wines. Today, Eric and Philibert, his grandsons, have taken over, continuing the remarkable work of their father Antony.
Chateau Carbonnieux Pessac-Leognan Blanc 2016 is based on 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. It’s a winner offering intense notes of lime peel, white grapefruit, and vibrant minerality to go with clean, crisp, racy yet beautifully balanced style on the palate. This terrific white can be drunk with incredible pleasure today or cellared for a decade or more.
