Chateau Carbonnieux Grand Cru Pessac Leognan

Château Carbonnieux white is a legendary wine. It is said that in the 18th century it was introduced to the Sultan of Constantinople’s palace because of its clarity and was called “mineral water from Carbonnieux”, thus defying the Islamic law.
The clay–limestone of Garonne gravel found in the Pessac-Léognan Appellation certainly produces the best dry white wines in the Bordeaux region. When young, Carbonnieux white wines are delightfully refreshing and pure with a fruity, floral intensity. When mature they develop hints of dried and candied fruits giving scope for a large range of gastronomic pairings. The batches which will form part of this “cru classé” will be blended so as to induce an excellent complicity between the grape varieties. The chosen Semillon grapes will add structure to the liveliness of the Sauvignon grapes by giving them roundness and volume on the palate.
Serving temperature : 12 – 14°C
Cellaring advice : 4 – 8 years
Wine and food pairing : raw or cooked fish, seafood, foie gras, white meat, exotic dishes, cheese, fruit desserts…

Light, fresh and refreshing, the juicy mix of lemon, tart green apple, and lime rind is already easy to drink.
