Classic, but dated style of a white with skin contact. It starts with a complex yeasty, lemon peel nose and just a hint of oak, which is quite attractive. However, in the mouth the dry, mineral balance and the more that moderate tannins from skin contact and the barrel just you the classic but not so appealing mouthful of ashes. It does work with food but I wish the tannin was a bit more subdued.

Beautiful pale golden yellow color. Crisp but not overly dry. Citrus notes with good acidity. Long finish. Very nice. Not too much oak. Distinctively different.

A gorgeous Carbonnieux, this is one of the finest dry whites Carbonnieux has recently produced. A light straw color accompanies enticing aromas of figs, lemon zest, grapefruit, and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, with good acidity, loads of fruit and depth, and a long, concentrated finish, it should evolve beautifully for 15+ years. A great value!
A fresh and fruity white, with vanilla, lemon curd and light dried apple character. Medium-bodied, with good acidity. This is always good quality. Drink now.
Although monolithic, this is a competent effort displaying notes of lemon zest and honey. Medium-bodied, with admirable fruit, but neither the depth nor complexity of the 2001, it should drink well for 10-12 years.
Located just south of the town of Bordeaux near the River Langon, Château Carbonnieux produces some of Bordeaux's best white wines. This beauty is no exception. Wine Spectator calls it stunning and rates it 90, I call it one of the best whites you'll ever have under $25. Full and rich, oranges, lemons, and limes lean into hints of spice and a ton of vanilla. The perfect white for that very special occasion.
Toasty and nutty at first, but with aeration the fruit emerges - first as pungent passion fruit, then more elegantly as nectarine and limes. Finishes long, fresh and clean - a wine that can be drunk now and over the next five years, possibly lodger.
Rich, honeyed nose with mouthwatering citrus elements that finish with a crisp acidity and a hint of toasty oak.
This is a superb wine, broad and rich but with complexity from mature vines and wood aging. For a 2003, a hot year, this still brings together some great acidity. Can drink now, but will age over the next ten years.
One of the most dramatic improvements in Bordeaux is what proprietor Tony Perrin has accomplished with Carbonnieux’s red wine program. The whites have always been among the leaders of the appellation, but he has built more fruit, body, and texture into the reds over recent vintages. Another unequivocal success, the 2006 offers creme de cassis, kirsch, and subtle smoke characteristics in a medium-bodied, pure, elegant style. With lovely texture, sweet tannin, and a savory, long finish, it should offer delicious drinking after 3-4 years of bottle age, and will keep for 15+ years. 90-92" WA 5/07
