Pessac-Leognan, Château Carbonnieux 2015

DKK 349,00 inkl. moms

Pessac-Leognan, Château Carbonnieux 2015 is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot matured in 30% new barrels for 15-18 months. It has a surprisingly high-toned and opulent bouquet, with kirsch and orange sorbet infusing the cassis and raspberry fruit. The palate is sweet and generous in style, harmonious in the mouth, with the structure only becoming apparent as it wends its way to the finish. Perhaps it just cuts away a little swiftly, but otherwise this remains a very well-crafted and highly enjoyable Pessac-Léognan.

Score: 91/93 Neal Martin

A very tannic young wine with lots of extract. Full body, chewy and rich. Needs careful barrel maturation. Could be the best red ever from here. Traditional style.

Score: 93/94 James Suckling

2015, The magic of “5”.
Bordeaux remembers the mythical 1945, 55, 75 or more recently 85, 95 and 2005.
A perfect weather along the vegetative cycle allows 2015 to follow the ten-year legend for the marvellous vintages produced in years ending in “5″.

Château Carbonnieux Red 2015

Deep, intense, almost crimson colour. The nose is expressive and fruity. The attack is fresh, then evolves towards a generous tannic structure, characteristic of great wines with ageing potential. The majority of cabernet sauvignon in the blend provides volume and a remarkably long finish. The merlot and the petit verdot add aromatic complexity and a certain delicacy to the wine. Ageing 16-18 months in barrels (35% new oak) 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
