$90.00 per Bottle

"This has such clarity and vision with white peach, lemon, lime and stone aromas and flavors. Some phenolic texture on the palate. Full body, intense and rich. Needs at least two or three years to come together. The second wine of La Mission and Haut Brion blanc." JamesSuckling.com

"Distinctive, with lime zest and white ginger notes out front, followed by pear eau-de-vie, Jonagold apple, blanched almond and green plum accents. The long finish has hints of brioche, which should blossom with time in the cellar. Drink now through 2020. 1,375 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Tasted blind. 61% Sémillon. A touch smoky but also has a light apricot note. Tight, bright but does taste as if there is some botrytis here - adding interest rather than elegance. There's power here too but rather brash. According to Stephen Browett of Farr Vintners, this wine trades for less than the release price, as do almost all Clarence Dillon wines."
