    In a few words ...

    Chateau de Carbonnieux covers 92 hectares of vines, planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot for the reds, and 65% Sauvignon and 35% Semillon for the whites.
    The communes of Pessac belong to the large Graves production area. The poor, gravelly soil nurtures very delicate, full-bodied and fruity wines.
    a magnificent aromatic intensity.

    the 1988 vintage is a classic vintage with an advantage to the right bank. Some Pomerols and Saint Emilions eclipsed their younger counterparts of 1989 and 1990 in elegance. The red wines were very tannic, very colorful, very complex. These are long-ageing wines, which can be expected to develop a fine, powerful bouquet as they age.

    Fleshy and flavorful, these wines are in the same vein as the Medocs, but slightly less dense.

    Good. Structured, mellow tannins and black fruit aromas. Tasted in Bordeaux at Noailles with a fine piece of rare beef, a pleasant match.

    The palate is silky and delicate for this Pessac-Léognan. Pairs well with poultry or red meat.
