Chateau Carbonnieux, Grand Cru Classé de Graves 2015, Pessac Léognan, France
Tasting Note: An enjoyable Crus Classé Bordeaux with body and balance between the fruit and tannin structure.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black plum, blackberry, crushed raspberry, red cherry, blossom and forest floor.
On the palate dry, the medium-plus-bodied Bordeaux has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-grippy, medium tannin.
The wine completes with medium-plus finish and peaks towards the back of your palate.
