    Professional Ratings: 89 The Wine Advocate

    Region: Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France

    Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blends

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 101688

    Winemaker's Notes:

    34% Merlot – 7 % Cabernet franc – 59% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Fine deep crimson color. The nose is marked by aromas of grilled spices, sap and ripe fruit. When the wine is swirled, the terroir expresses the mineral and smoky fragrances distinctive of the personality of Léognan wines.

    Bold, vibrant and crisp initial taste, for this heat-wave vintage. The wine is firm, dominated by full-bodied and mellow tannins that do not mask the fruit. Fine harmony between the crispness of the fruity aromas and the tannic strength.

    Food and wine pairing: Red meat and game. Our suggestion: Guinea fowl with red fruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Carbonnieux's elegant offerings frequently remind me of a high-class Burgundy more than a classic Graves. The 2003 reveals smoky, black cherry, and herb characteristics, a soft, plush texture, projected, open-knit aromatics, sweet tannin, and a long, broad finish. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 years
