    Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot were picked between September 17th and October 8th. The 2015 Carbonnieux wonderfully carries the Bordeaux wine successes from the years ending with "5" (as a reminder: 1945, 1955, 1975, 1995 and 2005). This Pessac-Leognan is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot and offers a singular nose of cedar, black cherry and red rose petals in a good olfactory freshness. The attack is very dynamic and the mid-palate reveals a good tannic structure with creamy yet strong tannins. The finish is delicious on the fruit and broad. It is a well-produced and very solid Carbonnieux.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Carbonnieux is very earthy with fallen leaves, mossy bark and damp soil notions with a core of red currants and black raspberries plus a waft of wild thyme. The medium-bodied palate is firm, grainy and fresh with delicate red fruits and an earthy finish.
