Grand Cru Classé de Graves - Pessac Léognan
The Carbonnieux vineyard started in the 13th Century and is among the oldest ones in the Bordeaux region.
Its ownership went back and forth between the monks of Sainte Croix Abbey and various important families of the area,
until 1956; when it was bought by the Perrin Family. After Marc and Antony, it is now Eric, Christine and Philibert, the third generation, who manage the estate.
Château Carbonnieux is a Grand Cru Classé (Classified Growth) of the Graves appellation for both its red and white wines. The vineyard is located in the Pessac-Leognan appellation and is exceptional for its morphology and the diversity of its soil. It is planted all in one piece around the Château over a 92 ha area: 50 ha for reds and 42 ha for whites. This unique distribution leads us to be the biggest white wine producers of all great growths in the entire region of Bordeaux.
