Displaying more power depth muscle and tannin than usual this opaque ruby/purple-hued 2010 should evolve for 20-25 years.

There is a touch of sur-maturite on the nose although the delineation is commendable and it seems to mellow in the glass that over-ripeness diminishing. The palate is full-bodied and dominated by the tannins that seem to be fully ripe whilst the finish demonstrates good delineation and persistency. This has very good potential.

Very pure with a lovely supple feel to the structure and long unadorned red currant raspberry and cherry fruit that sails along. Shows flickers of warm stone and spice on the finish. -J.M.

I like the blueberry menthol and mineral character with full body and silky refined tannins. Tiny bit short.

From sloping deep gravelly soils with some clay. One of the oldest Graves estates Carbonnieux has been making wine since the 13th century without interruption! The nose is slightly muted at this stage and a bit herbal but it has a soft elegant entry onto the palate. Loads of attractive blue fruit and licorice in the mouth lead to a medium length finish.
