Château Carbonnieux Red
Château Carbonnieux red has for centuries been a great classic from the region of Bordeaux. With its high standard of quality, it is the smooth result of an excellent blending of grape varieties from this region.
The vinification, both modern and traditional of red wines, is carried out by slow and gentle extraction in order 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 fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry…) and reveal toasted notes from ageing in the finest quality French oak barrels. Only the very best batches tasted are selected for the final blending of Château Carbonnieux red wines.
On the palate the taste is unctuous, full, powerful with a slightly woody note without the astringency or hardness of tannins, this wine needs to reach its best through aging but it certainly promises to be a great wine.
Deep purple color with hints of ruby.
In the nose the fruity flavour dominates the woody flavour with wonderful blueberry notes thank to the ripeness of the Merlots and the nice strength of the Cabernet Sauvignon with its smoky hints is easily recognized.
Blackberry and cedar, and light graphite notes emerging with time.
