A classic Pessac-Leognan, the 2009 Carbonnieux possesses aromas of sweet black currants and cherries intermixed with hints of roasted herbs, unsmoked cigar tobacco, charcoal and licorice. Medium to full-bodied with more concentration than many vintages, this surprisingly fleshy effort has more poundage and glycerin than this normally light-styled Bordeaux has offered in the past. Harmonious sweet tannins and low acidity give the wine a fleshy mouthfeel and immediate appeal, but most of its aromatic complexity will not emerge for another 5-7 years. It should keep for two decades or more. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at a negociant. This has a very ripe nose that flirts with sur-maturite but pulls it back from the brink. Good definition: succulent black cherries, black plum and some glycerine. The palate is medium-bodied, fine tannins, very pure with good delineation, taut with minerality inflecting the black fruits on the off-dry, slightly brutish, tannic finish. I think this will soften nicely by the time of bottling and this represents good potential for the future. Tasted April 2010.

A little lean, with chewy tannins, medium to full body and a medium finish. Slightly short

Lift and succulence on the nose. Then cool and admirably dry. Sandy but not sandpapery tannins. Appetising. For the elegant long haul.
