Chateau Carbonnieux Blanc 1980

97/100 @chateaucarbonnieux Blanc Pessac-Leognan Grand Cru de Graves 1980 . Nectarine smoked oak, toasted vanilla sugar cane egg custard cinnamon caramelised almond hazelnut butterscotch white pepper white mushrooms quince dried apricot . Oily texture Med body High acidity Med alcohol Pronounced intensity Long finish finish . The wine despite his 40years old is still on the (late) peak and show still power on the nose but with an incredibly gentle palate. The complexity of flavour is huge well held but the fresh acidity of the primary fruits! The wine is extraordinary! CHAPEAU CHÂTEAU CARBONNIEUX! . Thank you @ilario_terranova_ for this gem! . #WineDoctorateSchool #photooftheday #winelover #winelovers #winecountry #wineoclock #winebar #winetasting #foodandwine #winetime #winenight #winelife #winery #lifestyle #winestagram #instawine #wineporn #sommelier #winetasting #wine #vineyard #london #luxury #white #bordeaux #france #pessacleognan #sommelier #sommlife #somm
