It makes for a tight zesty wine with a chalky mineral texture. The fruits are developing to give a crisp wine that's full of fruit along with intense acidity. Drink from 2022.

Aromas of cooked apples, lemons and stones. Full body, tangy acidity and a grapefruit aftertaste. Lively and fresh.

The 2014 Carbonnieux Blanc has a detailed and vivacious bouquet offering attractive blackcurrant leaf and citrus aromas, hints of almond and white chocolate just tucked in nicely below the surface. The palate is well balanced with a slice of bitter lemon on the entry. This is a little more piercing in the mouth compared to its peers, as such, it would shine when partnered with shellfish or even hard cheese, rather than a white Pessac-Léognan to serve on its own. Still, a great job here this year. - Neal Martin

A ripe and friendly style, with creamed gooseberry and white peach flavors, lined with lemon curd notes and backed by a whiff of shortbread on the finish. Has a lovely verbena echo that lengthens the finish. Hard to lay off now, but this has the zip for a little bit of aging. Drink now through 2019. 15,000 cases made. –JM

17/20 Interesting fermented lemon-candy nose. Racy and mineral with a very appetising dry finish and not too much tartness. Confident and refined.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2017
The 2014 Carbonnieux Blanc is laced with the essence of lime, grapefruit, white flowers and crushed rocks. Chiseled and sculpted, it offers striking nuance and freshness in a midweight, somewhat tense, style.
