WE 94
Wine Enthusiast, March 2015
(WE92-94 points) Complex wood and fruit flavors mingle richly in this dense wine. It has fine acidity that brings out the black currant fruits, as well as ample freshness. The structure is solid and the wine will age well.

The 2014 Carbonnieux Rouge has a delightful, clean and pure bouquet with gravel and sous-bois scents neatly interwoven into the blackberry fruit. It feels quite understated, but it gains intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity that lends this impressive tension and vibrancy. There is not enormous length here, but the sorbet-like freshness wins you over. Keep in the cellar for 2-3 more years and then enjoy over the next 15-18 years. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, April 2015
(WS88-91 points) Has a brisk edge, with plum pit and Campari notes, followed by a hint of rose petal. Iron and sanguine hints chime in on the slightly sinewy finish. Should flesh out a touch more with the élevage. – JM

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2017
The 2014 Carbonnieux offers good depth and complexity. Succulent red cherry, smoke, tobacco, licorice, mint and dried flowers create a savory/floral profile. The tannins are a bit rustic but the wine is coming along nicely.

The menthol and cassis nose here leads into quite a traditional wine, but the dry tannins aren’t a jot too much. This is a very solid wine that will gain in harmony with a few years’ ageing. Try in 2020.
