    Chateau Carbonnieux, Pessac Leognan Red 2012

    $108.00 SGD $0.00 SGD

    "A very complex wine from the Perrin family, the 2012 Carbonnieux has dense ruby/purple color, notes of grilled meats, blackcurrants, sweet cherries, graphite and spice. It is medium to full-bodied, elegant, very pure with supple tannins. This can be drunk in a few years, but promises to age impressively for 12-20 years."

    91 RP.

    The estate takes its name from the Carbonnieu family, who owned the property in 1234.

    Chateau Carbonnieux has 47 hectares of vines for red wine grapes planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 0.5% Petit Verdot, and 0.5% Carmenere. It is one of the few Bordeaux vineyards with plantings of all 6 traditional red grape varieties. 

    Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks. The red wines are aged in an average of 33% new French oak barrels for 18 months.
