2008 Chateau Carbonnieux Cru Classé de Graves

Red Blend-France-Bordeaux

The nose and palate are very pure, with vibrant intensity. Offers aromas of blackcurrant, mulberry, cherry and subtle smoky notes. The vintage should be cellared for a few years, to have time to express its full value.


Alcohol Content:12.00%

Straw-green color. Initially yeasty, leesy aroma blows off, leaving intense grapefruit, anise and chamomile notes. Fresh and bright in the mouth, with strong acidity giving clarity and cut to the grapefruit, tangerine and peach flavors. Finishes long and razor-sharp, with the acids greatly extending the flavors on the aftertaste. Range: 88-90

Always a quintessentially elegant-styled offering, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2008 Carbonnieux reveals outstanding purity in its deep kirsch, black currant, underbrush, and herb notes. This is not a blockbuster, but it exhibits more density than most examples over recent years. Beautiful sweet tannins, luscious red and black fruits, medium body, and a long finish suggest this 2008 should be at its peak between 2013-2022. Range: 90-92
