Wine Enthusiast, April 2018
The firm tannins in this wine are dense and concentrated, ripe rather than dry. The fruit and juicy acidity give the wine richness and crispness at the same time. It has a great future. Drink from 2025.

The dark berry and iodine aromas are fascinating with bark and black tea undertones. Medium to full body, juicy fruit and a savory finish. Hints of tobacco and chocolate. A long time favorite. Drink in 2020.

The 2015 Carbonnieux is impressive. Dense and powerful in the glass, with layers of fruit and insistent, driving tannins, the 2015 has a lot to offer. Black cherry, smoke, scorched earth, licorice, cedar and game fuse... The 2015 Carbonnieux is impressive. Dense and powerful in the glass, with layers of fruit and insistent, driving tannins, the 2015 has a lot to offer. Black cherry, smoke, scorched earth, licorice, cedar and game fuse together and all the elements are very nicely balanced in this impeccable Pessac-Léognan.

Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Carbonnieux is very earthy with fallen leaves, mossy bark and damp soil notions with a core of red currants and black raspberries plus a waft of wild thyme. The medium-bodied palate... Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Carbonnieux is very earthy with fallen leaves, mossy bark and damp soil notions with a core of red currants and black raspberries plus a waft of wild thyme. The medium-bodied palate is firm, grainy and fresh with delicate red fruits and an earthy finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(JL90-92 points) Finesse, charm and soft, polished, fresh, ripe, smoky, dark, red fruits make this medium-bodied wine quite the treat.

Classic notes of black cherries, ground herbs, licorice, and hints of earth all emerge from this medium-bodied, concentrated, structured Pessac that has ripe tannin and a good finish. It's backward and tight, and needs 4-5 years of bottle age but should last for two decades.

Wine Spectator, January 2018
Offers cassis, raspberry and cherry paste flavors, showing flashes of mulling spice, sweet tobacco and warm earth. Suave and accessible. Best from 2019 through 2027. — J.M.
