An exceptionally well-structured red wine from Pessac-Leognan

Chateau Carbonnieux is a Grand Cru from the Pessac-Leognan appellation. This red wine is produced on a 52 hectare vineyard, where reasoned agriculture is practiced. The aging is done in Bordeaux barrels (30% are new), for 15-18 months depending on the vintage. 2016 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.

Chateau Carbonnieux 2016 has an intense purple-red color due to the concentration of the grapes. It reveals a beautiful texture in the mouth and frank aromatic expressions. This racy and full-bodied wine that is not aggressive but beautifully round and elegant.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
