The Carbonnieux Blanc has a certain strictness and linearity on the nose but opens nicely with crisp green apple, citrus peel and a touch of grass cuttings. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with delicate touches of white peach and dried pineapple, demonstrating good tension and persistency on the finish. This is an admirable Carbonnieux Blanc that should age well over a decade. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

I like the blueberry, menthol and mineral character, with full body, and silky, refined tannins. Tiny bit short. James Suckling jamessuckling.com

Rounded and inviting, with hints of pear and apple giving way to more citrus, floral and straw notes. This has good range, with a brisk edge waiting in the wings on the finish. —J.M. James Molseworth, winespectator.com

Pale greyish green. Smoky, Sauvignon aromas with an undertow of medium body. Bone-dry finish. Does the business though without that much élan. Sleek and very refreshing and readable. Oak very discreet. Needs time perhaps? Still quite astringent. jancisrobinson.com

Fine lifted lemony fruit, a lovely expression of the northern Graves, florality, fruit and acidity all in balance. Drink 2012-16. (17 points). Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

This is a delicious, crisp, white with focused vibrant flavours that dance on your tongue. A delightful light- bodied white Bordeaux with a fairly long finish. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com
