At first nose, citrus and exotic fruit exhale. After stirring a slight vanilla aroma mingles with notes of Semillon, white peach, hazelnut and dry apricot. The attack on the palate is smooth and round. A harmonious balance of sweetness and acidity brings volume in mid palate. The finish is long, delectable and complex. Ageing : 10 months in barrels and wooden casks (25% new oak).

Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Spice and toast give this wine attractive complexity as well as ripeness. It shows abundant, concentrated yellow-fruit notes as well as a fine texture. It is still very young and will be better from 2021.

Wine SpectatorFriendly white peach and honeysuckle notes breeze through, with a kiss of brioche at the very end. (Barrel Tasting)

Wine AdvocateThe Carbonnieux 2017 Blanc is scented of grapefruit and squeezed lemons with a touch of lime leaves and chalk dust. The palate is medium-bodied, crisp and clean with great intensity and a long racy finish.
