Food Pairings for Château Carbonnieux Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan
Classic, but dated style of a white with skin contact. It starts with a complex yeasty, lemon peel nose and just a hint of oak, which is quite attractive. However, in the mouth the dry, mineral balance and the more that moderate tannins from skin contact and the barrel just you the classic but not so appealing mouthful of ashes. It does work with food but I wish the tannin was a bit more subdued.

A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Carbonnieux Blanc 750ml
The 2006 Carbonnieux is immediately striking, with a complex, pure and restrained aroma of white fruits and mineral accents. The palate has excellent balance and purity, leaving a long, dry, nuanced finish. Perfectly ripe and complete, this is an outstanding vintage from this estate. Tasted from barrel April '07. By early '09, Carbonnieux delivers everything the wine promised when tasted from barrel two years ago. Aromatically, the wine is pure, fresh and restrained, then reveals a lovely scent of white fruits, lanolin and mineral highlights. On the palate, Carbonnieux is fresh and very clean with a bracing, firm backbone. Medium weight as usual for this property, the wine possesseubtle, nuanced finish. A classic and individual expression of white Graves. Robert Parker 91.
Good full ruby. Ripe, musky aromas of black cherry and bitter chocolate. Ripe, juicy and youthful, with noteworthy intensity to the flavors of dark berries and smoked meat. A very primary style; appears to possess the mid-palate texture to support it... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Carbonnieux 750ml
RP This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux�s dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines.
A stunner for Carbonnieux. Rich and powerful, yet reserved, loads of vanilla, apple, citrus and spice filling out this full-bodied, very intense white. Great class and balance. Superb winemaking.
This white Graves really makes in impression, above all with its gorgeous perfume of ripe fruit, flowers, vanilla and smoke. Very, very rich (50% Sèmillon), but with excellent balance and a crisp finish. It will age well, but there's no need to wait. It really stands up and expresses itself now.
One of the most dramatic improvements in Bordeaux is what proprietor Tony Perrin has accomplished with Carbonnieux’s red wine program. The whites have always been among the leaders of the appellation, but he has built more fruit, body, and texture into the reds over recent vintages. Another unequivocal success, the 2006 offers creme de cassis, kirsch, and subtle smoke characteristics in a medium-bodied, pure, elegant style. With lovely texture, sweet tannin, and a savory, long finish, it should offer delicious drinking after 3-4 years of bottle age, and will keep for 15+ years. 90-92" WA 5/07
