TASTING NOTES

"This is a dense and lively La Mission white with lemon, lime and cream character and a light mineral and salty undertone. White pepper and salt at the finish." JamesSuckling.com

Rating: 97-98


"The La Mission Haut-Brion 2018 Blanc is made of 57.4% Sauvignon Blanc and 42.6% Sémillon, harvested August 27 to September 5. It reveals intense lemon curd, lime leaves, yuzu and green mango scents with hints of chalk dust, orange blossoms, pie crust and coriander seed. Medium to full-bodied, the palate explodes with vibrant citrus and tropical fruit layers, with a satiny texture and just enough freshness, finishing long and layered." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"The 2018 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is rich, ample and expressive, with tons of Sauvignon Blanc character and the added textural richness of the vintage. Orchard fruit, white flowers, mint and white peach all meld together in a pretty, understated wine. The 2018 offers lovely aromatic brightness as well as a sense of translucence that is quite appealing. The Blanc is 57.4% Sauvignon and 42.6% Sémillon." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Less aromatic than the Clarence and a little more spicy. But more impressive on the palate – clean-cut, bright, herby lemon, so fresh for this vintage but with some opulence. Juicy and long and mouth-watering. Much more intense than the Clarence just tasted. Almost a savoury quality from the lees on the finish." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
