Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc AOC Grand Cru Classe Pessac-Leognan 2018
A beautiful pale yellow colour with a slightly green tint. The first nose is fresh, revealing the fine lemon tones of the Sauvignon grape variety in its youth. After aeration, the wine presents the delicate notes of white flowers. On the palate, the attack is marked by an acidity worthy of the great fresh terroirs of the property in spite of a rather warm dry vintage. After, the wine is full round-bodied giving a very interesting balance on the palate with aromas of grilled hazelnuts reminiscent of the unctuous Semillon. 2018 has given a balanced wine with a fine concentration of aromas and an outstanding style for the vintage.
