This is pure fruitiness but with a tense, tight structure underneath.The fresh exterior is all citrus fruits and acidity, while behind lies a texture that demands aging. It's impressive, rich and worth waiting for. Drink from 2018. Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

Another full-throttle 2012 dry white, this 2012 offers lots of honeysuckle notes as well as a full-bodied mouthfeel and beautiful purity, elegance and length. Lemon zest, grapefruit and subtle wood characteristics are found in both the aromatic and flavor profiles. Drink this stunning Pessac-Leognan over the next 6-10 years. Ò Robert Parker

Tasted from a barrel sample at en primeur. The Carbonnieux Blanc has a well defined bouquet with lovely scents of lime flower and orange blossom that is very well defined Ò more complex than recent vintages. Hints of custard cream emerge with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a pleasant fatness in the mouth. This is certainly a concentrated Carbonnieux and although I would have liked a little more acid bite on the finish, this is certainly one of the best white wines from the estate in recent years. Tasted April 2013 Ò Neal Martin

This is a stoney and powerful white with chalk, sliced apple and green pear aromas and flavors. Full body and a dense finish. Very racy and salty. Drink or hold. James Suckling

Features a racy edge, with pastis and graphite notes coursing underneath the plum sauce and blackberry coulis flavors. Shows ample toast along the edges and through the finish, but displays good energy overall and should harmonize fully soon enough. Best from 2016 through 2022. 13,330 cases made. James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
