JS 94 pts
93-94 points James Suckling A very spicy and bright white with intense white peach, grapefruit and mineral character. Full body, crisp acidity. Beautiful. One of the best Carbonnieux of all time.
An inevitable wine of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, in the heart of the great terroirs of the Graves.
Accessible since its youth, the white wines of Château Carbonnieux have earned a place desired by many thanks to an always regular quality.
