What you'd expect from Carbonnieux. Good today but a better cellar. @ Pebble Beach Food & wine.

Perfect white Bordeaux, bursting with flavor. Citrus, sun, peach, and mild lemon. Perfectly balanced.

Soft citrus with touch of melon and slight vanilla. Mineral overtones make this a great wine.

Was fresher last year. Very good for one glass now, Spring 2019. Should improve 2021-2022.
