Lightly herbal, this is a crisp and bright wine. The strong structural element will allow the wine to age, with a textured character and perfumed acidity at the end. (RV)
This wine has Pessac typicity, on the high-gloss side of things. Its pretty high in Sauvignon/Semillon character on the nose, which is good, and it has clear typicity, although the oak overshadows the minerality. It has a gourmet ending, with an apricot and honeysuckle twist, as well as high acidity. (JA)
Very fresh, with lovely verbena, honeysuckle and jasmine notes leading the way, backed by racy meringue, yellow apple and melon rind flavors, showing a very late flash of oyster shell detail. (JM)
The Carbonnieux 2016 Blanc features fresh white peaches, Bosc pears and honeysuckle with touches of lemongrass and yuzu. Medium-bodied, refreshing and with a lovely intensity of apple and pears layers, it finishes on a mineral note. (LPB)
The 2016 Carbonnieux Blanc has a generous bouquet of apple peel, lemon verbena and ginger scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is slightly bitter on the entry, but there is commendable weight and concentration, and the delicate peachy finish lingers in the mouth. This is a solid showing, and it should offer a decade's worth of drinking pleasure. (NM)
Linear and solid white with sliced-apple, pear and lemon character. Full body. Little old style but I like it - as always.
An outstanding white, the 2016 Château Carbonnieux Blanc has a tight, slightly reductive style in its lime, citrus zest, and mineral-like aromas and flavors. These flow to a medium-bodied, elegant white that has bracing acidity yet good fruit. It needs a year or two of bottle age to come together, but it’s beautiful. 90+
