Producer: Château Carbonneau
Grape varieties: 90% Sémillon, 10% Sauvignon
Color: Effervescent White
On clay-limestone soil, the grapes were picked a week before those of the white wines to preserve a high level of acidity as well as freshness, essential for the production of crémant. Fermentation took place at low temperature (16°C). At the end of fermentation, the lees were stirred for 30 days to add body and complexity. The wine was then bottled to start the second fermentation for 10 months using the traditional method to obtain the mousse.
With vines up to 45 years old, the Carbonneau vineyard is located on an exceptional terroir in the Sainte-Foy Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. The vineyard has existed since the end of the 19th century, it is located in the east of the Gironde department, straddling the communes of Pessac-sur-Dordogne and Gensac, 25 minutes east of Saint-Emilion. With Merlot in red and Sauvignon in white as the main grape varieties, the Carbonneau vineyard is fairly representative of what we find on the right bank of Bordeaux. The clay-limestone soils of the property allow the Cabernet Franc to flourish and provide us each year with an excellent blending base for the Merlot, both in terms of its structure in the mouth and its spicy aromas... And Below, on more fertile soils, around twenty Blonde d'Aquitaine cows share almost 30 ha of meadows. This allows you to benefit from fertilization based on manure, entirely natural and produced on the property.
