Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc
Pessac-Leognan
France
2010

Wine Enthusiast Reveiw by by Roger Voss
A delicate, classically textured white wine, this is a pure combination of apricot and lemon fruits with crisp, delicious acidity despite the wood aging. A great success in its restrained style, this should age well.

Vinous Review: 87-90 points 
Pale straw. Musky aromas of tangerine, lemon drop, butter, honey, and oatmeal. Ripe and fairly fat in the mouth, but with lively acidity framing the citrus and herbal flavors. The long finish features building minerality. A very good Carbonnieux, but I find it to be a little softer and less precise than some past vintages; it just may need a little time to come together. Certainly, there's lovely density to the fruit presence. Winemaker Romain Racher told me that the property needed to bring in a second picking team to help at harvest time, because they deemed it necessary to pick the sauvignon blanc very quickly in order to avoid a large drop in acidity levels.

Red Bordeaux pairs nicely with red meat, game such as pheasant and poultry such as grilled turkey. It complements food prepared with red wine and rich sauces.
