La Franc Touch, Chateau Carbonneau, Sainte Foy, Bordeaux 2020
100% Cabernet Franc, 20% whole bunch, this is Bordeaux garage wine. Trodden under foot the wine exudes that classic Cabernet Franc wildness, with the crunchy minerality and smokey tones that keep you coming back for more. Minimal sulphur added at bottling.
Chateau Carbonneau is a family owned and run Chateau, situated on the eastern limits of the Gironde. The estate straddles the communes of Pessac sur Dordogne and Gensac at an altitude of 75m above sea-level.
The 30 ha is split between vines and 20 Aquitaine Blond cattle. The cows have an important part to play in the fertilising of the vines.
The Franc de Ferriere family took over the Chateau in 1992, Wilfred and Jacquie worked hard to renovate the property and vines. Today, their children join them, working to bring the Estate to full organic status in 2022 and biodynamics by 2023.
