    (Chateau Carbonnieux (Pessac-Léognan)) Sweet and slightly smoky fruit on the nose here. Certainly a firm, lightly toasty barrel influence also. An elegant style on the palate though, perfumed and yet with a very good density, fresh, and well filled out. In the middle there is a good showing of crunchy tannins, with a full, spicy, sandalwood-tinged layer of fruit. Plenty of firm acidity. It all leads into a strong, grippy finish. Very attractive, although in a firm and robust style. A good effort for Carbonnieux though.
