- Greenish color - Lys stragul med et grnnskjr i fargen. Duften treffer deg mitt i nesa med blomsterduft av fioler, sitrus, syrlige grnne epler og mineraler. Flint, vat stein, tang og salt sj.
I munnen fortsetter blomsteraromaene og dominere. Dette er en vin som gir tydelig assosiasjoner til fullmoden grapefrukt og som brer om seg bakerst i munnhulen. Ved neste niva og i svelget flger igjen nyanser av mineralitet og flint, rlite hint av eik og treverk.

Nye ettersmak som brer om seg og holder smakslkene i spenn til den siste drapen er svelget og fortrt. Lett og vatt treverk, noe fatlagring, tropiske frukter som igjen overtar smaksbilde og sitter igjen med en lang, lang ettersmak.

Eneste minus ma vre at syra er fortsatt litt stram, men gi denne vinen nok tid pa langs i kjeller i 3-5 ar til, sa blir dette en "hydare" av en toppvin

Revisiting Graves (Vinexpo, Bordeaux): Once again, as experienced in April, this barrel samples shows much citrus zing in the form of grapefruit brightness. The almost 70% Sauvignon Blanc is ripe and zesty, making this an excellent summer white for a party opener!

Revisiting Graves (Vinexpo, Bordeaux): Similar to my experiences in late March and early April. Floral aromatics, high toned aspect on the medium bodied palate, just ripe enough tannin that matches the acidity. Medium finish. Nice job.

4th Saturday Group brown bagger (Our house): Apple and waxy white fruit aromas with a dirty overtone. Melon, clay and soily/gravelly fruit on the palate. This should be much better. So very disappointing.

Very attractive. This has a very pale green color, like lemon grass. It's very smooth and fills the mouth with flavor of lychee and vanilla. Enjoyed with grilled fish. Should improve with a couple of years of cellaring.

Popped and poured, then drank in a somewhat scattered fashion. This is a light yellow, almost clear wine, with a nose of lemonheads and grass clippings. The mouth shows some daisies, but also is thicker and more marked by wood than one might expect. Overall, this is in an odd place; it either needs time or needs acid. 90 points for now.

This is quite robust for the vintage. And perhaps the rather noticeable new oak has added tannin to the fruit tannins.

So, it's an oaky youthful cabernet (60%) merlot (30%) cab franc (10% blend at present, with that characteristic dry cocoa powder character of Graves. Less fragrant and fine than some medoc Bordeaux from this vintage.

Good wine. Should merit considerably higher points in a decade.

13% ABV. Sealed with cork.
Drink now, but better left for another 5 years or more.

Kept under condition 2 since september 2011, under condition 1 since september 2012 (see my profile). Color: a bit golden yellow. Nose: refined, with a hint of mint. Taste: grassy and herbal notes, a hint of pineapple and quite prominent oak of good quality, which gave a refined caramel taste to it. Unfortunately but not unexpectedly no sign of the refined lemon taste it had after two years (see my previous note). Again a white wine in which the oak is prominent, but this time it was well integrated with the other components of the taste. After all a quite refined wine. I would not wait very long with another bottle. 89-90.

Wine Education Service - Bordeaux - Graves (LSE): Intense golden colour.
Slightly oxidised nose, very pleasant stewed fruit notes.
Rich and spicy, dried fruits, caramel sweetness in the mid palate, good length, plenty of life remaining.

Intriguing nose of burning embers, sage and tobacco leaf. Medium- to full-bodied, with a hot rocks-type element, solid acidity and a good amount of still-unresolved tannin. Finishes quite long, with a whiplash of minerals and dark fruits. Still very young, with a promising future ahead -- way ahead. I would wait at least another five years before opening another. This must be the be the greatest Carbonniex in recent memory, as it certainly eclipses the 1995, 1998 and 2000 by a healthy margin.

Westchester Wine School: Pessac Leognan Tasting (White Plains, NY): Drank at WWS Pessac tasting. Some melon on the nose, as well as a pleasant freshness. Very deep gold in color. Citrus notes on the palate, as well as fairly vibrant acidity. Developing a round, pleasant mouthfeel as it sat in glass--some creaminess there. Plenty of fruit here, some honey, but also a definite stony or slate element here. Nice wine, though not as enjoyable to me as were the other whites tasted.

Amazing how much this wine changed in the glass. Started out with a bit of a funky nose but opened up after a couple of minutes. Each pour (from decanter) was better than the last. Some fruit. Well integrated and enjoyable.

Den beste hvite Bdx jeg har drukket på lenge(drikker ikke mye av det heller). Flott intens aroma av sitron, grapefrukt og noe gran. I munnen er den medium fyldig med tydelig syre. På smak er det mer gran preg tydeligst, men også her er det sitron og grapefrukt. Rett etter åpning var det noe eikepreg, men dette har forsvunnet etter ca 2 timer. Meget god vin til en overkommelig pris. 91-92 poeng. Gjennkjøp: JA.

An impressive showing for a young wine with the structure and stuffing to impress over the upcoming years. On this occasion, the pop & pour approach did it a disservice until aerated for an hour plus, and I think substantially more time would have served it well. Ripe floral nose. Palate of raspberry ad red currants and coffee, with a nice floral aspect. More intense than delicate. An underrated estate when it comes to its red IMO, especially in great vintages (the 2005 sings!).
