WINE PROFILE

Other Notes

The Château Carbonnieux rouge 2018 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The wine is aged for 15 to 18 months in Bordeaux barrels, 40% of which is of new oak.

At the tasting, the Château Carbonnieux red 2018 presents a purple colour, dense and deep, shimmering with ruby reflections. The aromatic bouquet seduces with its intensely fruity expression, revealing notes of red berries. The personality of each grape variety is fully expressed, with notes of blueberry contributed to the wonderfully ripe Merlot, and smoky notes from the Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, the wine is very powerful, evolving a delicious rounded and generous texture with slightly woody notes. The tannins are remarkably structured and polished. A very rich wine indeed, the Château Carbonnieux red 2018 is undoubtedly a great vintage of the property, with a future full of promise.

Tasting Notes

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Carbonnieux leaps from the glass with vibrant notes of baked blackberries, warm cassis, preserved plum and lavender with touches of Indian spices, forest floor and dried sage. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, the generous fruit has loads of bright, vibrant sparks plus a great line of freshness, finishing mineral tinged. - Wine Advocate/Parker
