Chateau Carbonnieux 2016

In stock
750 / Bordeaux / 2016

The 2016 Carbonnieux has a gorgeous, beautifully defined bouquet with pure black fruit, hints of sous-bois and pressed flowers, the new oak seamlessly integrated. What a nuanced and sensual bouquet! The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of ripe, black, graphite-tinged fruit, supremely well-judged acidity and a level of harmony that frankly, I have never encountered on a Carbonnieux. This is a brilliant wine from this Pessac-Léognan estate that has threatened to make a wine this good in the past.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points Wine Advocate

Lively, with a bouncy edge to the mix of plum, cherry and cassis notes. A light tarry echo shows on the finish, but this relies more on juicy acidity. Solid length. Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points Wine Spectator

Firm and on the stalky side, this is a wine with dense tannins. It has a solid core that will stand it in good stead as it matures. A firm wine that does finish with elegant acidity. Barrel Sample: 93–95 Points Wine Enthusiast
