PDO PESSAC-LEOGNAN


Château Carbonnieux is located in Léognan in the heart of Pessac-Léognan AOC (Protected Designation of Origin) which was created in 1987. This designation comes from the Graves region and includes the 10 municipalities of the first south-west belt of the city of Bordeaux (Pessac, Léognan, Cadaujac, Canéjan, Gradignan, Martillac, Mérignac, Saint-Médard-d’Eyrans, Talence and Villenave-d’Ornon). It covers approximately 1,600 hectares (80% red grape, 20% white grape varieties) and encompasses 70 wine producing châteaux including 14 “Crus Classés” (Classified Growths).

Union des Crus Classés de Graves


In 1953, 14 châteaux from the Graves region were honoured with the title of “Crus Classés” (Classified Growths), either for their white wines or red wines or both. Château Carbonnieux was renowned for its two colours. There are only 6 Châteaux (Bouscaut, Chevalier, Latour-Martillac, Malartic-Lagravière, Olivier and Carbonnieux) among the 9000 wineries from the Bordeaux region that have a classification for both their red and white wines. The 14 “Crus Classés” from the Graves region have been in the Pessac-Léognan AOC since it was created in 1987.
