91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Carbonnieux 2018 Blanc features intense lime juice, yuzu and green mango scents with touches of lemon curd and white pepper. Medium-bodied, very tightly wound and zesty in the mouth, it has a racy backbone and a mineral-laced finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Sémillon flavours are to the fore right now in this full and ripe white. Exotic fruits, stone fruits, apricot and white peach flesh all vye for attention on the palate. It's a little low in acidity but beautifully balanced and extremely caressing. I tasted this a few times and the generosity and delicacy came across each time. There's a lot to enjoy here, but in a softer, gentler expression. 25% new oak. 40hl/ha yield. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030 (JA) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

91-92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The wine already has a delicious side that is both refreshing and tangy. Its tight texture is bright, shining with herbs and crisp fruitiness. It exudes freshness on the finish. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

89-92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Youthfully jangly, offering a mix of asparagus and herb notes that are starting to give way to green plum and yellow apple flavors. Still a bit turbid, so best to wait and see how this develops. Delivers range and depth. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. (JM, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 65% Sauvignon, 35% Sémillon; 25% new oak. Barrel sample. Cloudy lemon. Invitingly creamy, mealy aroma over lively citrus plus a touch of crushed stones. More herbal on the palate. Deeply fruited, obviously oaky, but flavourful and with potential harmony. (JH) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
