This wine has a wonderful citrus character, fresh lemons and limes going with the mineral texture. It is crisp while also structured, bright with acidity and zesty with lemon and orange. The aftertaste is herbal, crisp and bright. Drink from 2022.

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.
92 Wine Spectator
This has lots of energy, with enticing thyme and tarragon notes flecking the core of lemon zest, white peach, tangerine and straw flavors. The long salted butter finish crackles with life. Rock-solid, and will be fun to cellar for a touch. Drink now through 2017. 9,417 cases made.
