The vineyard for Chateau Carbonnieux's white wine is situated on clay-limestone slopes which support the region's famous Garonnaise gravel. These rare and respected terroirs produce exceptional white wines whose superior character has been recognized for centuries. When young, Carbonnieux's white wine charms with its freshness, its purity and its fruity, floral aromatic intensity. When mature, it develops notes of dried and preserved fruit which offer numerous opportunities for satisfying food matches.

Right off the bat this has richness and concentration, with peachy creaminess but without sacrificing tension and lift. It’s a fine example of what 2017 can deliver in the best whites. Should age very well. - Decanter Magazine 95 points
