Château-Carbonnieux Pessac-Léognan Blanc 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Tightly crisp, this coiled, nervy wine is likely to age well. It has a refreshing, crisp undertone that gives it freshness while just hinting at the warmth of the vintage.
Wine SpectatorBarrel Tasting. Fresh and open, with a lime pith note giving the mix of verbena, melon rind and tarragon flavors good cut.
Wine AdvocateThe Carbonnieux 2016 Blanc has a gentle nose of peardrop, citrus peel and orange blossom: attractive if just missing the race and drive of either the 2014 and 2015. The palate is well balanced with lime and a touch of orange zest on the entry. There is good depth of fruit here and a pleasant saline finish-it just needs more acidity.
