This vintage is one of the oldest from the very old soil of Graves.
It is located on a high point of the commune of Léognan, composed of a gravelly slightly inclined soil towards the North-West, and perfectly drained.
The white Pessac-Léognan 2006 is one of Bordeaux's finest white wines.
It has a beautiful yellow and gold appearance, with notes of white and hazelnut flowers, with hints of fresh peach in the mouth.
It is a tasty and charming wine!
"This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux's dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines."

The Château Carbonnieux 2008 has a splendid nose, both ripe and very elegant.
