87-100 Robert parker Wine Advocate:
Carignan displays lots of colour, good, sweet black currant and black cherry fruit, medium body, silky tannins and low acidity. It is lush, sexy, and everything an inexpensive Bordeaux should be.

Frseh and clean with a blueberry and light herb character. Medium bodiy with light tannins and a fresh finish.

15,5/20 Jancis Robinson
Deep black cherry. Cedar and cassis lively on the nose. Pretty herbaceous on the palate but the tannins have been well handled and show no greeness. Rounded fine tannins
