The Domain: Château Carbon d’Artigues is a property located in the heart of the Land of Graves in the municipality of Landiras. The origin of this vineyard dates back to the 14th century, when it was the property of Francis de Goth, lord of Landiras, nephew of Pope Clement V, who named it "Caillou d'Artigues". The entire vineyard extends on the south slope of the hillside of Artigues.
Since 1988, Louis-Michel Musyt and Michel Bonnot have been the owners of Château Carbon d’Artigues. They have, since the beginning, implemented modern winemaking techniques, and worked on a continuous improvement of their productions. The property now covers a total production area of about 20 hectares of vines in the Graves red appellation, and 6 hectares of vines in the Graves white appellation. The Graves terroir produces reds considered great wines, and extremely sought-after dry white wines. They often have a flamboyant style and a rich structure from their youth.
