About this product +

Producer >

Château Carbonneau is a family owned and run Château, situated on the eastern limits of the Gironde. The estate straddles the communes of Pessac sur Dordogne and Gensac at an altitude of 75m above sea-level. The 30 ha is split between vines and 20 Aquitaine Blond cattle. The cows have an important part to play in the fertilising of the vines. The Franc de Ferriere family took over the Château in 1992, Wilfred and Jacquie worked hard to renovate the property and vines. Today, their children join them, they are certified organic and will be certified biodynamic this year.
