2015 Carbonnieux Rouge, Graves

SKU #1374753 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The firm tannins in this wine are dense and concentrated, ripe rather than dry. The fruit and juicy acidity give the wine richness and crispness at the same time. It has a great future. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This delicious wine impressed during en primeur, and still does - it's one of the best wines ever produced here, with succulent, fleshy but restrained black fruits and good balance. It's not one that you will have to wait forever to uncork. (JA) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The dark berry and iodine aromas are fascinating with bark and black tea undertones. Medium to full body, juicy fruit and a savory finish. Hints of tobacco and chocolate. A long time favorite. Drink in 2020. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Carbonnieux is impressive. Dense and powerful in the glass, with layers of fruit and insistent, driving tannins, the 2015 has a lot to offer. Black cherry, smoke, scorched earth, licorice, cedar and game fuse together and all the elements are very nicely balanced in this impeccable Pessac-Léognan. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Château Carbonnieux is made from 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot that spent 18 months in 30% new barrels. Classic notes of black cherries, ground herbs, licorice, and hints of earth all emerge from this medium-bodied, concentrated, structured Pessac that has ripe tannin and a good finish. It's backward and tight, and needs 4-5 years of bottle age but should last for two decades. 92+ Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers enticing cassis, raspberry and cherry paste flavors, showing flashes of mulling spice, sweet tobacco and warm earth. The plush structure gives this a suave and accessible feel through the finish, with a perfumed hint to boot. This should be very charming with short-term cellaring. Best from 2019 through 2027. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very deep crimson. Intense, brooding nose. Pretty dry but well constituted. Dry finish. Quite ambitious. Seems pretty Cabernet. Inner quote mark (4/2016)
