Chateau-Carbonnieux Pessac-Léognan 2018
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
Lightly herbal, this is a crisp and bright wine. The strong structural element will allow the wine to age, with a textured character and perfumed acidity at the end. Drink from 2022.
Well-built, with a core of dense plum paste, raspberry reduction and melted red licorice notes framed by roasted apple wood accents and backed by juicy, brambly grip on the finish. Youthfully vibrant and should cellar well in the midterm. Best from 2021 through 2031. 15,000 cases made. -JM
