James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2011
Wow. Best wine ever from here. Superb with intense mineral character and loads of fruit too. Full and rich with an ultra long finish.

Powerful and rich wine full of ripe pineapple and peach flavors. The wine is smooth toasty concentrated. Immense ripe fruit.

The Carbonnieux Blanc has a certain strictness and linearity on the nose but opens nicely with crisp green apple citrus peel and a touch of grass cuttings. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with delicate touches of white peach and dried pineapple demonstrating good tension and persistency on the finish. This is an admirable Carbonnieux Blanc that should age well over a decade.

Rounded and inviting with hints of pear and apple giving way to more citrus floral and straw notes. This has good range with a brisk edge waiting in the wings on the finish. -J.M.

A loaded nose offers crushed sea shells high-toned citrus notes and an underlying creaminess. On the palate this displays upfront green apple and bright citrus with enough salinity and minerality to give it a defined and crisp finish. Delicious wine a stellar return from this estate. Drink now or over the next 15+ years.
