    (Chateau Carbonnieux Pessac-Léognan) Lovely and very typical, unforced Graves fruit on the nose, red berries with gravel and tobacco, and there is a little edge of sweetness to it that tells us the wine still has more development to do I think. The palate is soft, but gently polished, with nice flesh and a very well integrated structure. Through the middle the tannins show a little more, and there is good acidity too. It is a little loosely held together today but there is certainly very good potential here. There is purity to the flesh too, ripe tannins and an elegant style. Very good indeed.

    (Chateau Carbonnieux Pessac-Léognan) There are attractive, black fruit aromas on the nose here, but also a faint lacing of tobacco, something I would not expect to see until the wine is more mature. It has a good concentration of fruit, and a slightly burnt, charcoaly character. The composition is soft and supple to the fore, but behind it there is quite a bit of grip and an attractive, bitter streak. Overall this wine is unassuming and nicely put together.
