Carbonnieux is 10 miles from Bordeaux near the Garonne, in Pessac-Léognan, Graves. The estate’s history dates back to 1215. The Benedictine monks were the first to bottle wine from the estate.
In 1985, Marc Perrin bought the estate and made significant investments in both the vineyard and winery, which is currently managed by his children. Now the vineyards are sustainably farmed and grapes are handpicked before being vinified and aged on their lees in differently sized oak barrels.
The white wines of Carbonnieux are the consistent star with refreshing acidity, bright fruit, and minerality.
