A blend of 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon, the nose on the Carbonnieux Blanc displays fine minerality with some attractive limestone scents, almost Burgundy-like in fruit profile. The palate is nicely balanced on the entry, missing a little fruit intensity on the entry but it has a pleasant build towards a sedate pear and pithy finish. Fine. Tasted April 2012.

Riveting acidity carries the sweet pea, mâche, chalk and kaffir lime notes in this superracy, light-bodied version. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Water white and a little cloudy. Sweet, creamy, mealy oak on the nose. Vanilla and ripe stone fruit. Crisp sour grapefruit on the palate and arrow-like freshness. Really direct and intense. Tight and long. Tangy aftertaste. A little masochistic but good overall. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

This is a generous, balanced wine with great intensity and depth. The flavours of nectarines and star fruit is lifted by firm acidity. Focused wine with good length with potential to age for five or more years. Jeannie Cho Lee MW, AsianPalate.com
