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 EnthusiastThis wine's smooth texture is deceptive. Under this creamy guise, a taut, steely character promises long-term aging. Richness and fruitiness harmonize with complexity. Drink from 2022.

Wine SpectatorVery bright, with lots of gooseberry and chamomile notes racing along, this glistens with a fleur de sel edge on the mouthwatering finish. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2024. 7,500 cases made.

Jeb DunnuckNotes of lemon curd, citrus rind and hints of crushed rock define the 2017 Château Carbonnieux, which is medium-bodied, pure, and elegant on the palate. It's another great white from the Pessac-Léognan region in 2017.

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.
