Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Nice, balanced subdued mineral and Mellon taste. Went excellent with white fish under broiler. 2016 — a month ago

Château Clerc Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

Pretty stark contrast between this and the Chateau Carbonnieux drank alongside. Much more regal, linear and mature. On the nose, mature dark fruit, forest floor, cassis, leather. Similar in the mouth. Some tannins with good acid. Needed about 2 hours in a decanter to fully realize potential. A proper and mature Pauillac. — 5 months ago

Le Petit Coquerel Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Christine Barbe is the winemaker at Coquerel and she brings years of experience with her, having worked at both Château Carbonnieux and La Louvière in Pessac-Léognan. Her deft handling of this crisp and enchanting white shows—the 2013 Le Petit Coquerel is artfully imbued with bruised pear, cucumber and lemongrass notes. Refreshing and bright, with racy acidity cradled in star fruit, crushed shell and fleur de sel notes. Sur Lies aging adds weight and texture to this poised Calistoga Verdeleho. 13.5% ABV | Sample — 5 years ago

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Recommended by a wine shop employee in Paris, and it did not disappoint. Had a perfectly cooked NY strip steak with a couple glasses of this and it was an amazingly tasty dinnerto rival the best restaurants. — 2 months ago

Château Carbonnieux

La Croix de Carbonnieux Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Sometimes you just want a nice relatively classic Bordeaux. Not sure I’d had their second wine before. Nice with some great classic Bordeaux notes with a nice long finish with good balance. — 4 months ago

9.4

On the nose, muted dark cassis, wild dark, brambly berries, dry stems, pepper, loamy soils, blackberry cola and dark fresh florals. The mouthfeel is big and lush. Tannins are soft and round. The fruits are very ripe. Blackberries, blueberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, dark chocolate, mocha powder, salted caramel, spice-box, soft leather, tobacco with ash, crushed dry rocks, stones, black tea & dark fresh florals. The finish is rich, lush and round fruits with just the right touch of earth. As well, the acidity is very good.

Château Landereau

Bordeaux Clairet Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

A really nice well structured Bordeaux blanc. Not quite the heft of carbonnieux, but a lovely drinker at the beach. Goes great with crab. — 5 years ago
