|Marke||Chateau Carbonnieux blanc|
|Traube||Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon|
Composed of 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon, the 2019 Blanc was harvested from the 29th of August to the 18th of September. Yields were 42 hectoliters per hectare this year. The alcohol came in at 13% with a pH of 3.1. It is aging in French oak barrels, 25% new, with lees stirring for an anticipated 10 months. The nose displays delicate scents of pear tart, fresh yellow apples and honey-drizzled peaches with hints of lemongrass and dill seed. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with invigorating freshness supporting the stone fruit and citrus flavors, finishing zesty.
A dense, tight red with creamy texture and dried-pear and apple character. It’s full-bodied, focused and intense. Serious effort. One of the best whites from here.
