Tasting Notes

Gunsmoke, stone fruits, elderflower, cold ash, oyster shell, spice. As it opens thorugh the palate, creamy stone fruits add depth, grip and lift. Great quality, precise and with huge persistency. Excellent quality from this always consistent estate.

Score: 94

The 2023 Carbonnieux Blanc is bright, chiseled and full of Sauvignon Blanc character. I find it a bit austere in feel, though. It lacks just that little bit of mid-palate texture that could take it to the next level.

Score: 87 - 88

Antonio Galloni, Maturity: 2025-2030 30 April 2024

A blend of 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Sémillon, the 2023 Carbonnieux Blanc exhibits elegant aromas of pear, white peach, spring flowers and herbs, followed by a medium-bodied, satiny and long texture enhanced by bright acids and a lively mid-palate. It concludes with a long, delicate, mouthwateringly mordant finish, making it a classic white wine from this estate. - Tasted by Yohan Castaing

Score: 90 - 92

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 26 April 2024

Very bright and mineral with lively citrus-fruit, ginger, white-flower and crushed-stone character. A hint of seashell, too. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and focused with tense acidity and a firm, lightly phenolic finish.

Score: 93 - 94
