Garnet colour with a fuchsia red hue, dark and dense, opaque and shiny; open and spicy nose, with notes of redcurrant, red cherry and pepper, woody notes, a hint of peony; fairly supple attack, with notes of redcurrant and roasted wood, tannins that are still fairly green; finish on tension, good power, nice character, medium body.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Founded in 1740 by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of the Holy Cross, the Castle Carbonnieux is one of the oldest estates of Bordeaux.
