- Closure: Cork
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.
Neal Martin eRobertParker.com #230 (Apr 2017)
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.-J.M.
Big and juicy red with lots of fruit and tannins yet it's not overdone. Full-bodied, chewy and intense. Lots of potential here. Better than the 2015?
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.
The 2016 Carbonnieux is positively delightful. Elegant, gracious and medium in body, the 2016 possesses exceptional finesse and nuance. Bright red cherry, white pepper and mint add a super-appealing upper register. Above all else, though, Carbonnieux speaks to total finesse. This is an especially refined wine for the appellation.
