2008 Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc Pessac-Leognan

Had this wine on a great Greek beach in Lefkada and it was quite refreshing even for a hot summer day.

2008 Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc Pessac-Leognan

Pale yellow lemon color with green reflections. A well developed, complex and intense nose, combining aromas of tropical and yellow fruits: mango, peach, melon and ripe lime, with a very nice smoky edge. Fresh, full bodied and extremely lively on the palate, the flavors mirror the nose. The mineral and smoky character are a touch more pronounced in the mouth, but this only makes the wine more complex. Medium plus finish, refreshing, with nice citrus fruit. A really nice wine. (91/100)
