2016 Chateau Carbonnieux Rouge Pessac-Leognan Bordeaux
Excellent Pessac Leognan made of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot.
Tasting Notes: 90 Points - "For me, Carbonnieux always tastes similar to a grand cru Burgundy from the appellation of Corton. The deep ruby/plum-colored 2016 offers lots of cherry, earth and spice aromas along with loads of fruit, medium body and a surprisingly packed style.
Still young and grapy, this beauty should develop the tell-tale signature of Pessac-Leognan with additional time in the bottle. Readers who have followed this estate, which is also renowned for their dry white wines, will be surprised by the intensity.
