TASTING NOTES

"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, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

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

"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." Wine Spectator

"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." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
