Wine Spectator, April 2015
(WS89-92 points) An herb-driven style, with thyme, chive and white asparagus notes racing along, flecked with lime zest through the finish. A tasty wine in the making. – JM

It is tight and nervy, with green fruit flavors and a taut, mineral texture. It needs time to develop and harmonize.

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

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.
