Château Carpena

Appellation : Côtes de Bourg

Vintages : 2015, 2016 et 2017

It’s in the ” Correspondance ” of the famous Latin poet Ausone that we find trace of the first wine-producing establishments in Bordeaux, and in particular on the edge of the Gironde on the limestone plateau, which currently overhangs this estuary formed by the Dordogne and the Garonne. This is where the Château Carpena is located, a vineyard reconstituted in the 1980s by Mr. Claude Carreau, who is also the owner of the famous Château Eyquem, a neighboring wine estate also located on the same clay-limestone plateau in the commune of Bayon.

The opinion of our oenologists

With the Merlot grape variety dominating (90%), the wine has a good suppleness and roundness in the mouth, with ripe red fruit aromas. It goes perfectly with white meats, cheeses and also river fishes such as lamprey, a traditional Bordeaux dish.

The Côtes de Bourg appellation

The Côtes de Bourg extend over about fifteen kilometers along the right bank of the Gironde and the Dordogne. Its terroir is composed of clay-limestone, gravelly and sandy soils. The vines are planted on slopes with varied exposures, which explains the presence of numerous microclimates which influence the character of the wines. The vineyard, with a total area of 4,000 ha, mainly produces red wines (99%) with 3 to 8 years of aging. While Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are the most common, other grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Malbec can be used in the composition of the wines.
