A velvety-textured red with lots of blackberry, black-olive, mushroom and walnut character. Full and dense, but fresh and vivid on the finish. Pretty layers of fruit and tannins. ~93-94 James Suckling
Juice and freshness running through this, with a velvety texture and sense of momentum. Violet reflections, touches of chocolate and rosemary spice, still the savoury fruit that is typical of the vintage, clearly concentrated, but well balanced overall. 2% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. A yield of 42 hl/ha. 40% new oak. HVE3 certificated with one organic control plot. Drinking Window 2027 - 2040 ~93 Decanter
Sporting a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Carbonnieux opens with notes of tar, dark chocolate and licorice, giving way to a core of stewed black plums, cassis and blackberry compote, plus a waft of smoked meats. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating, juicy black fruits, supported by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing savory. ~91-93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another beautiful Graves, the 2020 Château Carbonnieux is medium to full-bodied, with plenty of classic Graves earthiness as well as beautiful red and blue fruits, lots of floral and exotic notes, ripe, polished tannins, and remarkable overall purity. This is certainly going to be an outstanding wine. ~91-93 Jeb Dunnuck
