Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
91-92 JS / 88-90 JD / 89-91 VM /
A juicy red with bright acidity and creamy tannins. Medium body, a pretty center-palate and a delicious finish. Crushed stones. - James Suckling.
The 2021 Château Carbonnieux has a modern vibe, with plenty of new oak on the nose, yet it brings solid depth of fruit, medium-bodied richness, fine tannins, and solid overall balance. It's certainly nicely made and might end up being an outstanding wine, and it should absorb some of its oak with just short-term aging. - Jeb Dunnuck.
The 2021 Carbonnieux has a focused, quite perfumed bouquet of blackberry, blueberry and crushed stone aromas; the oak is well-integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, and a little short, perhaps, yet balanced, leading to an unassuming finish. Not an exciting Carbonnieux, but I suspect it will develop well in barrel. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media.
