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.

Critical Acclaim

"Vibrant and exciting, with intense aromas of light toasty oak, pineapple skin, lemon, gooseberry, acacia honey and peach tart. Flowers even. Full-bodied, layered and refined, with tropical fruit, honey, vanilla, cream and light toasty oak. The length is amazing. White wine doesn't get better than this. Needs a little time, but hard to leave it alone. Best after 2014. 665 cases made."

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
