TASTING NOTES

"Blended of 76.2% Sémillon and 23.8% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2017 Blanc gives up seriously intense notes of jasmine, grapefruit, lime zest and yuzu with touches of crushed rocks and lemongrass. The palate is medium-bodied with electric intensity and incredible tension, finishing long with many citrus fruit and mineral layers." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236

"This is really layered yet tight and focused with searing minerality that gives it tension and energy. Full-bodied, bright and precise. Impressive. 76% semillon and 24% sauvignon blanc." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2017 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc was picked 22 to 31 August and matured in 38% new oak. It is very precise on the nose with lovely scents of orange blossom, Cornice pear, nettle and yellow flowers. The palate is well balanced with a slight waxiness on the entry. There is an underlying resinous quality to this La Mission Blanc with citrus lemon, Granny Smith apples, stem ginger and tangible mineralité towards the finish. This is a classy, sophisticated La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, one that is surpassed by the nascent Haut-Brion Blanc at the moment, but may have a trick up its sleeve with age thanks to the high proportion of Sémillon."

"The 2017 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is dense and powerful, yet also super-expressive. Lemon confit, white stone fruit, crushed rocks and white flowers abound. A wine of real depth and phenolic-like intensity, the 2017 has a lot to offer. Even at this early stage, the wine's balance is superb. Creamy, layered and yet quite structured, the 2017 is absolutely gorgeous, even in the early going." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Simple lemon and lime fruit on the nose. Piercing, precise and fresh but a light creamy texture and all quite primary though you have the weight and richness of the Sémillon balanced by the crisp Sauvignon Blanc, opening to a waxy richness. Very long." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
