Cellar/Tasting Notes
Haut Brion Blanc-The most sought after dry-white Bordeaux wine.

A balance between Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc, the wine expresses the utopian version of the Larrieu family (owners of the property in the 19th century) as it obtains the aromatic fullness of the finest dessert wine in a dry white wine! In its youth, the aromas are very remincient of Alsace or Burgundy. The palate is generous and will astonish with its length.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"It is always interesting to taste this wine next to its stablemate, Laville Haut-Brion. While Laville has 80% Semillon in it, giving it more fat and concentration, Haut-Brion is 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon. This is a crisp yet powerful wine, full-bodied, with great minerality and a subtle smokiness intermixed with hints of quince, white currant, orange skin, and lemon custard. Long, rich, and tightly knit, with good acidity and no evidence of any oak whatsoever despite the use of 100% new French oak, this wine is set for a long life as well."
Wine Spectator (WS): 95
"What a nose, with fresh pineapple, mineral, toasty oak, apricot and other fresh fruits. Full and very structured, with a tight yet thick mouthfeel. Long and flavorful. Really hiding it now, but it's all there."
