The "Carbonnieux style" is well and truly here! The aromatic palette is complete, ranging from citrus fruit to white-fleshed fruit, apricot and a slight touch of vanilla.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. Tightly crisp, this coiled, nervy wine is likely to age well. It has a refreshing, crisp undertone that gives it freshness while just hinting at the warmth of the vintage.

Wine SpectatorBarrel Tasting. Fresh and open, with a lime pith note giving the mix of verbena, melon rind and tarragon flavors good cut.

Wine AdvocateThe Carbonnieux 2016 Blanc has a gentle nose of peardrop, citrus peel and orange blossom: attractive if just missing the race and drive of either the 2014 and 2015. The palate is well balanced with lime and a touch of orange zest on the entry. There is good depth of fruit here and a pleasant saline finish-it just needs more acidity.
