Critical Acclaim

"Very herbaceous in character, this is a wine that is packed with powerful acidity yet remains elegant in style. It has minerality and tight acidity, and should benefit from aging.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points "
95 Points

"Riveting acidity carries the sweet pea, mâche, chalk and kaffir lime notes in this superracy, light-bodied version.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points"
93 Points

"Vivid pale straw-green. Captivating nose of white peach, minerals and white flowers. Bright, deep and dense, with juicy flavors of citrus, quince and white peach framed by a strong mineral quality on the multilayered palate. Very fresh and pure on the long, refined finish. This is a very successful, intense Carbonnieux that should age well.
Range: 90-92"

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
