Second Vin du Château Carbonnieux - Pessac Léognan
Originally, Château Tour Leognan was the estate located right next to Château Carbonnieux.
In 1956 Marc Perrin bought both properties; he reorganized all the planting-layout and Tour Leognan became the second wine of Carbonnieux.
From the early stages, Château Tour Léognan is made from the younger vineyards of Château Carbonnieux (vine younger than 12 years of age). It follows the same process and deserves the same care as its bigger brother. Being drier and fruitier, the Château Tour Leognan wines can be served younger but they still reflect the rich mineral variety of the soils, so specific to the appellation.
