2017 Carbonnieux, Graves Rouge

SKU #1494229 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Carbonnieux is dark and intense in the glass. Swaths of tannin wrap around a core of dark fruit in this decidedly potent, Pessac-Léognan. Orange peel, incense, spice, sweet tobacco and cedar add a super appealing exotic flair as the 2017 builds with time in the glass. Another few years in bottle should help things come together even more fully. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The ripeness of this wine creeps up slowly to reveal swaths of black fruits and a densely tannic core. The wine is layered with acidity that balances the black-currant flavors. The wine will age well. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This packs solid blackberry, red currant and boysenberry fruit paste flavors together, all inlaid with tar and licorice snap notes. A bold brambly edge infuses the finish with grip and energy. (JM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has attractively fresh and ripe, cassis and blackcurrant aromas. The palate has measured shape and a supple, fleshy feel with plenty of depth to the cassis and blueberries. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Château Carbonnieux is also more than a little impressive. This medium-bodied, balanced, elegant red gives up notes of cassis, spring flowers, and classy oak. It’s not massive by any stretch yet excels on its balance and purity. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Intense fruit flavours on the nose, with clear definition to raspberry, blueberry and brambly fruits. Medium bodied and a little soft through the mid palate, but plenty to enjoy over the next six to 12 years. (JA) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Deep cherry red. Sweetness of fruit and oak on the nose but all in balance. Lovely dry finesse to the tannins, so the overall effect is quite light but there’s delicate textured persistence. (JH) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
