Solid well made wine. Big tick for drinkability. Red fruits, balanced acidity. Good wine for the price

The acidity in this wine is searing, a pity given that Carmensac is a Grand Cru Classé. I can only guess that it's one of the 2011 vintage that didn't fare well. Aromas of blackberries, black currants and black cherries are bolstered by vanilla and cedar. It's quite thin and tight on the palate, lacking in generosity, with (as previously mentioned) very high acidity, firm tannins and a green, cedary finish. 13.0% ABV |

Mocha currant and earth on the nose. Very came sac like. The palate is very well balanced with currant and perhaps other Forrest berries and a good acid backbone. Gentle tannins kick up things a bit before a satisfying finish with fruit and freshness.

Gamey, smokey nose with a pinch of pepper and black currant. There are more secondary flavours than primary for now on the nose. Fruits make a comeback after a while and while agitating the glass. The palate is quite concentrated with blackberry and black currant for the fruit part, lively tannins and a bitter ending with a trace of chocolate that is very pretty. Nicely done. The acid backbone is there to support the palate and create balance. Not as good as the 2005 and 2010 I had the opportunity to taste but not far from them. Good wine.

Not as acidic as some comments suggested in earlier tastings. It may just be that it needed another year to get its legs. Not a lot of power, admittedly, but it went nicely with Argentinian beef. Berries of various ilk are there, so was enjoyable

Minerally-earthy nose, fruit-alc in check on the palate, little cigar box, little slate, medium tannins, fresh acidity, decent length... Has plenty to offer at this price point and from 2011.
