WE 94
Wine Enthusiast, April 2016
(WE92-94 points) There is a dark side to this wine. It shows in the brooding black fruits that are surrounded by dense wood flavors. It has power and good concentration for the future.
JS 94

(JS93-94 points) A very tannic young wine with lots of extract. Full body, chewy and rich. Needs careful barrel maturation. Could be the best red ever from here. Traditional style.

(WA91-93 points) The 2015 Carbonnieux is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot matured in 30% new barrels for 15-18 months. It has a surprisingly high-toned and opulent bouquet, with kirsch and orange sorbet infusing the cassis and raspberry fruit. The palate is sweet and generous in style, harmonious in the mouth, with the structure only becoming apparent as it wends its way to the finish. Perhaps it just cuts away a little swiftly, but otherwise this remains a very well-crafted and highly enjoyable Pessac-Léognan. - Neal Martin
WS 93
Wine Spectator, April 2016
(WS90-93 points) Vibrant, with a tangy damson plum note lifting the dark currant and blackberry fruit, while subtle juniper and black tea accents line the finish. Shows good character. - JM

(AG90-93 points) The 2015 Carbonnieux is laced with generous black cherry, plum, scorched earth, game, tobacco and cedar. The ripe, voluptuous fruit nearly buries the tannins, but they are very much present. This is an especially creamy, racy Pessac-Léognan built on forward fruit. The wine's textural balance and overall feel only add to the wine's considerable appeal.
JL 92
TheWineCellarInsider.com, August 2016
(JL90-92 points) Finesse, charm and soft, polished, fresh, ripe, smoky, dark, red fruits make this medium-bodied wine quite the treat.
