Château Carbonnieux 2009 Red (Pessac-Léognan)
Ripe and solid, this has dense tannins and a superstructure of opulent red-berry and black currant fruits. The wine is layered with coffee, wood-aging influence and a firm finish. It’s big and has great potential.
Château Carbonnieux 2010 Red (Pessac-Léognan)
Big, dusty tannins are forward on this firmly structured wine. Very dense in its character and style, serious and dark, it will develop slowly as its more juicy side begins to show through.
Château Carbonnieux 2010 White (Pessac-Léognan)
A delicate, classically textured white wine, this is a pure combination of apricot and lemon fruits with crisp, delicious acidity despite the wood aging. A great success in its restrained style, this should age well.
Château Carbonnieux 2008 Red (Pessac-Léognan)
Full-bodied, smooth wine, with spice and black plum fruit flavors packed into the sweet tannic structure. It’s solid and chunky, a sign of the greater concentration coming out of Carbonnieux in recent years.
