Château Carbonnieux produces one of Bordeaux' s finest wines in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. The origins of the estate date back to the Middle Ages. In 1953 and 1959, it was awarded the prestigious title of Cru Classé de Graves for its red and white wines. The wines of Château Carbonnieux are the fruit of an exceptional terroir and a passion for vines on the part of successive owners. Benedictine monks and several families have contributed to the international renown of the château's wines. Since 1956, the estate has belonged to the Perrin family. Today, Château Carbonnieux is run by Éric and Philibert Perrin.
