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.

89 points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate Most consumers outside of Bordeaux are probably far more familiar with the brilliant white wine made here than their red, but this is an elegant, Burgundian-styled red that could pass for a grand cru from the Cotes de Beaune. Sweet and sour cherry notes intermixed with notions of new saddle leather, burning embers, and tobacco leaf emerge from the complex aromatics. This dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium-bodied 2006 is not a blockbuster, but a wine of considerable grace, finesse, and elegance. Drink it over the next 12-15+ years. -February 2009 88 points - Wine Spectator Aromas of dried flowers and dried cherry. Medium- to full-bodied, with lovely berry fruit and strawberry, with balanced tannins and an attractive finish. Not a big wine, but very delicious already. Best after 2011. -JS,March 2009

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
