The 2014 vintage for Chateau Carbonnieux started off with rapid plant growth in the past year’s milder winter months, and flowering in the vines began to occur amidst the spring showers. July and August were rainy and cool which brought some concern to the winemaking team at the chateau, even though the health of the fruit was not affected. However, the end of August heralded in the miraculous Indian summer weather, providing ideal ripening conditions for the all of the varietals. The estate started to harvest their whites first, in early September, beginning with the Sauvignon Blanc, and ending with the Semillon. The red varietals began to be harvested towards the end of September.
