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 AdvocateThe 2015 Carbonnieux Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon. It has a tightly wound grapefruit, white peach and citrus scented bouquet that slowly unfurls in the glass. Given a couple of minutes, it attains impressive harmony and focus. The palate is well defined on the entry, very crisp and pure, seguing into a saline finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is a very well-crafted Carbonnieux Blanc with class and poise. 90-92
Wine SpectatorBarrel Tasting. Fresh and open, with a lime pith note giving the mix of verbena, melon rind and tarragon flavors good cut.
