The 2014 vintage was marked by early flowering and very slow ripening. All the aromas were preserved because the cool summer and the impeccable quality of the harvesting produced a high flying vintage. The ripeness and structure of the 2014 reds have good prospects for excellent tasting and cellaring potential.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a firmly structured wine, solid with fine tannins. Behind the tight facade, there is plenty of fruit as well as the acidity typical of the vintage. It will develop into a deliciously juicy wine. Drink from 2024.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Carbonnieux Rouge has a delightful, clean and pure bouquet with gravel and sous-bois scents neatly interwoven into the blackberry fruit. It feels quite understated, but it gains intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity that lends this impressive tension and vibrancy. There is not enormous length here, but the sorbet-like freshness wins you over. Keep in the cellar for 2-3 more years and then enjoy over the next 15-18 years.

Wine SpectatorJuicy, with a compact feel to the core of cherry and currant flavors, backed by bramble and tobacco notes, accented by a light loam echo. Should unwind nicely. Best from 2018 through 2024.
