Reviews for 2011 Carbonnieux Blanc

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, April 2012
Very herbaceous in character this is a wine that is packed with powerful acidity yet remains elegant in style. It has minerality and tight acidity and should benefit from aging. - R.V.

Riveting acidity carries the sweet pea mâche chalk and kaffir lime notes in this superracy light-bodied version.-J.M.

Captivating nose of white peach minerals and white flowers. Bright deep and dense with juicy flavors of citrus quince and white peach framed by a strong mineral quality on the multilayered palate. Very fresh and pure on the long refined finish. This is a very successful intense Carbonnieux that should age well.

Planted on deep gravel soils atop clay. Filled with lemon oil and grapefruit aromas plus loads of high-toned focused citrus. Hits the palate with clean bright and focused notes and shows a surprisingly long and vibrant finish with lots of crushed sea shell flavor and chalky minerality. Enjoy upon release and over the following 7-8 years.
