Croix de Carbonnieux is elaborated in homage to
the Benedictine monks of the Sainte Croix Abbey
in Bordeaux. First owners of the châteaux in
the 13th century, they returned in the 18th century
and brought Château Carbonnieux to the international
level of fame and prestige they enjoy to this day.
typical Bordeaux blend is a fine ruby color, with
a nose of red fruits and a smoky touch so common
to the wines from Léognan. Very versatile
for a young Bordeaux, it is best drunk from 5 – 7
years of age with grilled and roast meat, stew, fowl,
strong cheeses, or the "Bittersweet Chocolate Torte
with Apricot Filling" recipe
