    Winemaker's Notes:

    This red wine seduces in its first youth, then delivers all its aromas and complexity of flavor after many years of aging. With its well-balanced and silky tannins in harmony with its fruit, Chateau Carbonnieux's red is a wine of great, classic character.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Always a quintessentially elegant-styled offering, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2008 Carbonnieux reveals outstanding purity in its deep kirsch, black currant, underbrush, and herb notes. This is not a blockbuster, but it exhibits more density than most examples over recent years. Beautiful sweet tannins, luscious red and black fruits, medium body, and a long finish suggest this 2008 should be at its peak between 2013-2022. Range: 90-92

    Forward, fresh wine, that has some good intensity as well. There is a creamy, ripe character under the freshness, hints of attractive wood.

    Straw-green color. Initially yeasty, leesy aroma blows off, leaving intense grapefruit, anise and chamomile notes. Fresh and bright in the mouth, with strong acidity giving clarity and cut to the grapefruit, tangerine and peach flavors. Finishes long and razor-sharp, with the acids greatly extending the flavors on the aftertaste. Range: 88-90
