Château Carbonnieux 
Founded by the Benedictine monks of Bordeaux’s Holy Cross abbey in the 13th century, Château Carbonnieux is among the oldest estates in the Bordeaux region. In 1956, Marc Perrin acquired and restored this château bathed in history, which definitively earned the title of Cru Classé in 1959. Antony Perrin, his son, continued the aesthetic and technical improvements and gave this wine an international reputation.
Reticent nose with subtle notes of citrus and a measure of freshness. The palate is suffused with notes of stone fruits. Short finish punctuated by a clutch of toast notes. – Gilbert & Gaillard 89-91/100
