TASTING NOTES

"Composed of 56.2% Sauvignon Blanc and 43.8% Sémillon, the 2017 Blanc from Haut-Brion is a little more reticent on the nose than the La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, offering up subtle pink grapefruit, green mango and ripe pears scents with an undercurrent of baking bread, ginger and allspice plus a waft of lemon peel. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderfully generous tropical and citrus flavors accented by loads of spices, finishing long and savory." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236

"A tight and linear white with an energetic line of lemon-rind and lime character. Medium to full body, bright acidity and a fresh finish. 56% sauvignon blanc and 44% semillon." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2017 Haut-Brion Blanc was picked from 22 to 30 August. It has a slightly more intense and voluminous bouquet compared to the La Mission Blanc. I adore the nose here, so striking and precise with scents of freshly squeezed lime, dew specked green apple, orange zest and later apricot blossom, all with wonderful definition. The palate is medium-bodied with a tensile entry. There are notes of orange rind, fresh ginger and a touch of bitter lemon towards the persistent finish. It is an excellent Haut Brion Blanc that should offer 20+ years of drinking pleasure." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"The 2017 Haut-Brion Blanc is totally seamless, with no real beginning or end. Creamy and deeply layered, the 2017 is simply magnificent. Lemon confit, chamomile, mint, and white pepper. There is a real sense of textural depth and weight to the 2017, even if the flavors remain very much on the bright side of things. I imagine the 2017 will age beautifully for many decades to come." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"More creamy and spicy than the Mission Haut-Brion Blanc. More rounded but also more piercing from the Sauvignon Blanc. Quite a different style, lacks the waxiness of the Mission but is more persistent and more powerful. More depth yet without the same richness as in the Mission." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
