Chateau Carbonnieux white is a legendary wine. It is said that in the 18th century it was introduced to the Sultan of Constantinople's palace because of its clarity and was called "mineral water from Carbonnieux", thus defying the Islamic law.

The clay-limestone of Garonne gravel found in the Pessac-Leognan Appellation certainly produces the best dry white wines in the Bordeaux region. When young, Carbonnieux white wines are delightfully refreshing and pure with a fruity, floral intensity. When mature they develop hints of dried and candied fruits giving scope for a large range of gastronomic pairings. The batches which will form part of this "cru classe" will be blended so as to induce an excellent complicity between the grape varieties. The chosen Semillon grapes will add structure to the liveliness of the Sauvignon grapes by giving them roundness and volume on the palate.
Serving temperature : 12 - 14C
Cellaring advice : 4 - 8 years
Wine and food pairing : raw or cooked fish, seafood, foie gras, white meat, exotic dishes, cheese, fruit desserts.

2014, from doubt to certainty, a vintage saved by the sun god..
The climatic inversion between summer and autumn 2014 remains unique in the annals of Bordeaux and as winegrowers from the region we could only be filled with enthusiasm. The 2014 vintage was marked by early flowering and very slow ripening. All the aromas were preserved because of the cool summer and the impeccable quality of the harvesting produced a high flying vintage.

From the very first tastings of the blending, the distinct homogeneity of the batches was striking. It is the Sauvignon vintage par excellence with a mineral quality that would make our friends from Sancerre jealous! Ageing : 10 months in barrels and wooden casks (25% new oak)
Blending : 75% Sauvignon, 25% Semillon
ABV: 13%
