Winemakers Note

Château Carbonnieux, Classified Growth red & white One of the most ancient winegrowing estates in Bordeaux, Château Carbonnieux has made wine without interruption since the 13th century. Build in an understated style, the château itself is an impressive building dating from the Middle Ages. The first owners - and accomplished winegrowers - were the Benedictine monks of Sainte-Croix abbey in Bordeaux, who made internationally-renowed red and white wines centuries ago. The property became a Grand Cru Classé de Graves in 1953. It is one of the 6 estates to have its red and its white wines classified, but it is the only one which, thanks to its diversified terroir, has a vineyard of equal size for the reds (50ha) and the whites (42ha). Carbonnieux has belonged to the Perrin family for three generations. Today Eric and Philibert run the property, assisted by two of Eric's children, Marc and Andrea. The 2021 vintage 2021 is the 65th vintage vinified by the family. On this occasion, label of the two colors of the great wine of the property will change. Based on the strong symbol of the scallop shell, which is inseparable from the history of Carbonnieux and the monks of Sainte-Croix, who have been signing the white wines in a unique way for centuries, the label will be used for the first time on the red Château Carbonnieux to reinforce the coherence of the estate's wines. Marc Perrin tells you the story of this vintage:
