Grand Cru Classé de Graves

- +

The 2019 vintage closes a first decade in a remarkable way. The vines were able to benefit from adequate climatic conditions, and in particular from a hot and dry summer until the beginning of August. At that time, some rains came at the right time to trigger the ripening of the berries under the best auspices. A beautiful sunshine lasted until the end of the harvest of the white grapes, offering them an excellent aromatic potential.

Blend of the 2019 vintage: 65% Sauvignon blanc, 35% Sémillon.

The robe is a brilliant pale yellow color, tinged with discrete green reflections.

The nose offers freshness and balance, with notes of citrus, acacia and white-fleshed fruits, followed by a hint of butter and orange zest.

The attack is frank, giving way to a very nice mid-palate supported by an acidic tension that gives it freshness and balance. Developing with a lot of roundness and fatness, it lasts a long time before blossoming on a mineral and salivating finish.

Food and wine pairing:

Château Carbonnieux white 2019 will wonderfully accompany many fish dishes: tuna or salmon tartar, Poisson blanc au beurre blanc, grilled lobster, turbot with hollandaise sauce or a seafood pasta dish.
It can also be served with white meat dishes such as veal chop à la Normande, sweetbreads with porcini mushrooms or a chicken "à l'ancienne".

For an agreement with cheeses, privilege those of goat and ewe: Selles-sur-cher, Pouligny-Saint-Pierre, Ossau-Iraty.

For dessert, it will be very appreciated with a fresh fruit salad, pineapple with basil or citrus sorbet.

Cellaring potential and tasting:

Château Carbonnieux blanc 2019 is a great white wine for aging, and is ideal to enjoy between 8 and 10 years of evolution. Its peak will be between 2027 and 2029.

However, it lends itself wonderfully to tasting today. To do so, take care to open and serve the wine when it is at a temperature of about 10°c.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar protected from the light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
