"The Carbonnieux 2015 Blanc opens with scents of white grapefruit, lemon peel and fresh pears with touches of dill seed, white pepper, musk perfume and crushed rocks. Light to medium-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully racy backbone of refreshing acidity cutting through the intense citrus and mineral flavors, finishing on an herbal note."

"Aromas of stones, limestone and sliced pears follow through to a full body and tight and fruity flavors. Focused with an oyster-shell and cooked-apple aftertaste. Drink now."

"Deceptively medium in body, the 2015 Carbonnieux is laced with expressive grapefruit, lemon peel and white flowers. The crisp, bright finish is quite appealing, as is the wine's overall balance."
The attack is greedy with a delightfullemon freshness. Fullness and length in the mouth complete the qualities of this"magic" vintage.
