Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot were picked between September 17th and October 8th. The 2015 Carbonnieux wonderfully carries the Bordeaux wine successes from the years ending with "5" (as a reminder: 1945, 1955, 1975, 1995 and 2005). This Pessac-Leognan is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot and offers a singular nose of cedar, black cherry and red rose petals in a good olfactory freshness. The attack is very dynamic and the mid-palate reveals a good tannic structure with creamy yet strong tannins. The finish is delicious on the fruit and broad. It is a well-produced and very solid Carbonnieux.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Carbonnieux is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot matured in 30% new barrels for 15-18 months. It has a surprisingly high-toned and opulent bouquet, with kirsch and orange sorbet infusing the cassis and raspberry fruit. The palate is sweet and generous in style, harmonious in the mouth, with the structure only becoming apparent as it wends its way to the finish. Perhaps it just cuts away a little swiftly, but otherwise this remains a very well-crafted and highly enjoyable Pessac-Léognan.
