    (Château Carbonnieux Blanc, Graves) Almost overlooked in the great 2005 Bordeaux vintage are the beautiful white wines. This Carbonnieux proves that oak and Sauvignon Blanc can be happy bedfellows. Its nose is a fascinating combination of Meyer lemon with hints of yeast, minerality, and rich oak. The best white Graves can age nearly as long as their red counterparts, as this wine will demonstrate.

    (Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc Pessac-Léognan) This is a purer style, very slightly honeyed, with a floral and aromatic character on the nose, with notes of vanilla and buttercream alongside the flower petals. Full and fat impact on the palate, with more creamy vanilla character. Soft, rounded, very direct and structured in terms of grip and substance, and overall it has delicious style. It has some acidity, but not in the assertive character of some other recent vintages.

    (Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc Pessac-Léognan) 65% SB, 35% Sem. More vibrant than the 2006, which goes against the grain somewhat. Very fresh and vibrant. It has a touch more focus than the 2006 also, although still a warm, rounded style with underlying grip. Zippy acidity, but less lively than some of the other white Graves of this vintage. Nevertheless, still good, bordering on very good.
