Chateau Carbonnieux Pessac-Léognan 2018
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
Tightly drawn, with a cloak of alder and juniper over the core of steeped plum and black currant flavors. Lots of tar, bramble, loam and sweet bay accents score the finish, which sports heft and muscle. Superb showing. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2025 through 2038. 12,500 cases made.
93-95. Barrel Sample. The wine already has a delicious side that is both refreshing and tangy. Its tight texture is bright, shining with herbs and crisp fruitiness. It exudes freshness on the finish.
