Médoc AOC

Château Carcanieux has a surface of 40 hectares most of it dedicated to vineyard (37 hectares). Located in Queyrac on a hill named “Highlands of Carcanieux”, its soils is very gravely. From the many stones surrounding the Château came from its name carved on the fronton “Carcanieux Les Graves”.

Grape varieties:

Cabernet Sauvignon 60% – Merlot 25% – Cabernet Franc 15%

Vineyard:

Placed on a gritty and sandy rump for 25 years the vines of Merlot and Cabernet had acquired an enviable finesse.

Winemaking:

The stainless steel vats of the estate had been recently modernized, and allows rapid and traditional vinification.  The wine is aging in barrels with a maximum of 20% new wood.

Tasting notes:

A lovely wine offering a deep colour and a slightly spicy bouquet with notes of red fruit. Lots of elegance and balance on the palate, with smooth, silky tannins. A good, complex, rounded and well balanced wine.

Food pairing:

A very well-balanced wine to be tried with a rib steak, a peppered steak or a grilled lamb chop. To be enjoyed now, or kept for 5 to 6 years.
