Winemaker's Notes:

Its color now is a yellow with a bit of green giving off golden refelections. The nose is extremely intense and dominated by citrus. It is of an incredible richness and complexity with traces of white peaches, honey, orange blossom, and acacia. The wine has an astounding structure, both broad and long. Its body permits the wine to have a huge volume. We find again in the mouth all the aromatic complexity of the nose. The aromatic persistence at the finish is very impressive. It is certainly one of the great Haut-Brion Blanc of these last years.

About Chateau Haut-Brion:

Château Haut-Brion is the oldest and by far the smallest of the "Premiers Grands Crus" vineyards of the Gironde 1855 classification. Château Haut-Brion is one of the few remaining family-owned domains of the Bordeaux region with a history going back to the 16th century. It has been owned by the American Dillon family since 1935.
