2009 Chateau La Garde Blanc Pessac-Leognan
Pale straw color with green reflections. Very smoky and mineral nose, with mild aromas of lime and green apple. This is so much different from the luxuriant nose of Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc 2007 or 2008 I had relatively recent. Medium to full body, lively palate, yet spartan on the flavors profile, but it does seem to open and develop some richness as it aerates. Medium finish, mineral, chalky, with tart citrus fruits. (89/100)
I believe that this can go very well with raw fish or raw sea food due to its pronounced minerality.
