    Wine Enthusiast
    The ripeness of this wine creeps up slowly to reveal swaths of black fruits and a densely tannic core. Thewine is layered with acidity that balances the black-currant flavors. The wine will age well. Drink from2023.
    DEC 91
    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. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038 (JA)
    JD 92
    Jeb Dunnuck
    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.
    JS 92
    James Suckling
    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.
    VIN 93
    The 2017 Carbonnieux is dark and intense in the glass. Swaths of tannin wrap around a core of darkfruit in this decidedly potent, Pessac-Léognan. Orange peel, incense, spice, sweet tobacco and cedar add asuper appealing exotic flair as the 2017 builds with time in the glass. Another few years in bottle shouldhelp things come together even more fully.”
