Winemaker Notes

Yellow with green highlights. The nose is very fine and fruity with a touch of lemon. White peach overtones appear when the wine is swirled in the glass. Very elegant. Begins very full-bodied, rich, and soft on the palate, developing subtle juicy flavors.

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
Offers a subtle brioche frame, with paraffin, verbena, lemon zest, white peach and chamomile notes. Gains steam through the finish, delivering a light kiss of toast. Long and alluring, this shows a white Burgundy-like ability to age, gaining richness and hints of white truffle along the way. Drink now through 2026.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2011 La Mission Haut Brion Blanc is a beauty! Giving up a medium gold color and exotic notes of lychee nut, pineapple, honeysuckle, and marmalade, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a sexy, rounded, decadent texture, and vibrant acidity. The blend is 73% Semillon and 27% Sauvignon Blanc, and it should continue drinking beautifully for a least a decade.

Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion, France
Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion Winery Image
In 1664, Madame de Lestonnac bequeathed the domaine of La Mission Haut-Brion to the Peres Lazaristes, a congregation founded by Saint Vincent de Paul. The "good fathers" worked to restore their property to its rightful worth. After them, the Chiapella family (owners in the 19th century) and Woltner family (owners between 1919 and 1983) never stopped improving the vineyard and modernizing the cellars. Since 1983, the Dillon family, already owner of Chateau Haut-Brion, continues the same policy under the presidency of H.R.H. Prince Robert of Luxembourg.

Pessac-Leognan Wine

Bordeaux, France

Recognized for its superior reds as well as whites, Pessac-Léognan on the Left Bank claims classified growths for both—making it quite unique in comparison to its neighboring Médoc properties.

Pessac’s Chateau Haut-Brion, the only first growth located outside of the Médoc, is said to have been the first to conceptualize fine red wine in Bordeaux back in the late 1600s. The estate, along with its high-esteemed neighbors, La Mission Haut-Brion, Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pique-Caillou and Chateau Pape-Clément are today all but enveloped by the city of Bordeaux. The rest of the vineyards of Pessac-Léognan are in clearings of heavily forested area or abutting dense suburbs.

Arid sand and gravel on top of clay and limestone make the area unique and conducive to growing Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc as well as the grapes in the usual Left Bank red recipe: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and miniscule percentages of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The best reds will show great force and finesse with inky blue and black fruit, mushroom, forest, tobacco, iodine and a smooth and intriguing texture.

Its best whites show complexity, longevity and no lack of exotic twists on citrus, tropical and stone fruit with pronounced floral and spice characteristics.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
