Winemaker Notes

The presence of citrus fruits can be iden-fied in the nose, the dis-nc-ve style of Château Carbonnieux. As for the mouth, there is aroundness and voluptuousness that is rare at this stage. This characteristic leading to a full and well-coated mid-palate certainly comes from the marvelous Sémillon harvested this year. On the finish there is the pleasant sweetness and aroma complexity both floral and fruity with lemon, apricot, white peach typical of our white wines.

Blend: 55% Sauvignon, 45% Semillon

Critical Acclaim

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast

This wine’s smooth texture is deceptive. Under this creamy guise, a taut, steely character promises long-term aging. Richness and fruitiness harmonize with complexity. Drink from 2022.

D 95
Decanter
Right off the bat this has richness and concentration, with peachy creaminess through the mid-palate but without sacrificing tension and lift. It's a fine example of what 2017 can deliver in the best whites, and should age very well.
Barrel Sample: 93-95

Gooseberry and leafy aromas. Fresh fruit, some peach and nectarine richness, quite complex. Very appealing. Very delicious, long balanced finish. Ripe but fresh.

Wine Spectator

Very bright, with lots of gooseberry and chamomile notes racing along, this glistens with a fleur de sel edge on the mouthwatering finish. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2024.

JS 91
James Suckling

Attractive tropical-fruit aromas with mangoes and papaya, as well as peaches. The palate delivers a smooth and juicy feel with supple peaches and lemons, cast in fleshy mode. A blend of 60% sauvignon blanc and 40% semillon. Drink now.

Jeb Dunnuck
Notes of lemon curd, citrus rind and hints of crushed rock define the 2017 Château Carbonnieux, which is medium-bodied, pure, and elegant on the palate. It’s another great white from the Pessac-Léognan region in 2017.
Barrel Sample: 89-91
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Carbonnieux 2017 Blanc gives aromas of lemon pie, lime cordial, honeysuckles and almonds with wafts of cedar and white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied, tightly wound and crisp, finishing long.

Chateau Carbonnieux, France
Chateau Carbonnieux Winery Image
The history of Carbonnieux goes back a very long way, and records show that wine was made there at least as early as the 12th century. Benedictine monks from Sainte-Croix abbey in Bordeaux replanted and renovated the estate in the 18th century. They took advantage of the exceptionally pale, clear color of the white wine to label it as "Carbonnieux mineral water", which they then proceeded to ship to the sultan of Turkey.

Marc Perrin acquired and restored the chateau in 1956. His son, Antony, currently manages the estate. The gravelly soil at Carbonnieux is perfectly drained thanks to the Eau Blanche stream that carries away any excess water. The 85 hectares of vines are evenly divided between red and white wine varieties. The white wine is fermented and aged in barrel for 10 months. The red wine is aged for 15 to 18 months in barrel, depending on the quality and characteristics of the vintage.
