2012 Carbonnieux

Pessac-Leognan Bordeaux (375ml)



A very complex wine from the Perrin family, the 2012 Carbonnieux has dense ruby/purple color, notes of grilled meats, blackcurrants, sweet cherries, graphite and spice. It is medium to full-bodied, elegant, very pure with supple tannins. This can be drunk in a few years, but promises to age impressively for 12-20 years. Robert Parker 91

Features a racy edge, with pastis and graphite notes coursing underneath the plum sauce and blackberry coulis flavors. Shows ample toast along the edges and through the finish, but displays good energy overall and should harmonize fully soon enough. Best from 2016 through 2022. 13,330 cases made. Wine Spectator 90
