Tasting Notes:

The colour is pale yellow. The nose is both delicate and expressive, with a true sauvignon identity. On the palate, the attack is greedy with a delightful lemon freshness. The mid-palate is full and the slight vanilla hints of the oak harmoniously accompanies the floral character. Fullness and length in the mouth complete the qualities of this “magic” vintage.

Description

Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc 2015

Climate data
The growth cycle of the vines has progressed magnificently thanks to almost perfect weather at the right time. The 2015 vintage was sunny and early.
The budburst was rather late and very homogeneous, the flowering quick and very homogeneous too. Then a warm and dry month of July was ideal for a good start for the grape bunches. At the beginning of August rain came to replenish the vines and resulted in colour changing between 7 and 10 August.
Due to the favourable weather of the year in general and the harvest in particular, grapes of superb quality were harvested. Berries remained small throughout the grape ripening process and resulted in low yields.
