Winedoctor

  • By Chris Kissack
    April 2012, (See more on Winedoctor...) 14.5-15. points

    (Château Carbonnieux (Pessac-Léognan)) Quite a sweet and smoky tinge here, so perhaps some oak elements coming through. The fruit also has a deep, dark character, but it remains fresh. The texture on the palate kicks off in a very supple fashion and this remains true through the middle, although the style of fruit is quite full. The tannins are fairly firm, dominating towards the end; they certainly bring a chewy feel to the finish. Nicely balanced acidity though, quite correct, but there is a little more robust extraction here than in some of the more elegantly handled wines. No issues with fruit ripeness though. Good, but in a firmer and more robust style.
