Chateau Carbonnieux Graves
2014, from doubt to certainty, a vintage saved by the sun god….
The climatic inversion between summer and autumn 2014 remains unique in the annals of Bordeaux and as winegrowers from the region we could only be filled with enthusiasm. The 2014 vintage was marked by early flowering and very slow ripening. All the aromas were preserved because of the cool summer and the impeccable quality of the harvesting produced a high flying vintage.
The ripeness and structure of the 2014 reds have good prospects for excellent tasting and cellaring potential.
