Winemaker Notes

Sought-after by wine lovers all over the world, Cha^teau La Mission Haut-Brion white wine is extremely rare (500 to 600 cases). Containing an average 85% Se´millon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc with a dash of Muscadelle, this voluptuous wine is rich and concentrated with a wonderfully long finish. Previously known as Cha^teau Laville Haut-Brion, Cha^teau La Mission Haut-Brion is a wine for the initiated. It is unique: when young, it has the characteristics of a great Gewurztraminer. Over time, it takes on the amber color of a great Sauternes wine. This dry white wine expresses all the attributes of a Graves sweet wine, specific to the Se´millon grown on these famous terroirs.

Decanter
For me this is the wine of the vintage. Both of the whites in the Haut-Brion stable are exceptionally well sculpted and finessed, but this has the aromatic edge. It has a powerful, intense concentration of flavours, hemmed in by slate walls that make you slow down and inch your way through the palate - and I am more than happy to go as slow as possible. The cool nights over the summer have been very kind to these grapes; they are in full control, with luscious, creamy citrus, passion fruit, nectarine, white pear and touches of lemongrass. It's persistent and mouthwatering, an absolute testament to what white Bordeaux can achieve. 40% new oak.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A blend of 23.8% Sauvignon Blanc and 76.2% Sémillon, the 2017 Blanc takes its time uncoiling from its tightly wound state, slowly revealing nuances of lemon tart, lime blossoms, green mango and jasmine with touches of cedar chest and sea spray. Medium-bodied, the palate has a beautifully expressed, quiet intensity, featuring loads of subtle mineral and citrus layers, finishing long and chalky. Beautiful.

WS 97
Wine Spectator

Rich and racy at the same time, with a broad range of Key lime, white peach, yellow apple, verbena and meringue notes all woven together seamlessly, backed by a citrus oil accent on the lengthy, straw- and brioche-tinged finish. The finish shows terrific cut and drive despite the obvious richness. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Best from 2023 through 2040.

JS 96
James Suckling

Candied lemon with sliced apples, pears and stones with some lemon-grass and bay-leaf notes. Full-bodied, creamy and textured with a tight and focused palate that goes on for minutes. Shows great length and beauty. Very tight. Needs at least five years to open. Better after 2025.

TA 96
Tim Atkin
Some warm vanilla oak aromas. Deep baked lemon fruit scents. More concentrated and complex. Some pastry/lemon curd complexity. Rich with some notes of honey and nectarine. Concentrated with a hint of dry spicy phenolic and thyme. Concentrated and rounded, with delicious acidity and depth. Very good indeed.
Barrel Sample: 94-96
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Creamy tropical-fruit flavors and a hint of toast give this wine an opulent character, with a pleasant herbal streak for added depth. From a great white-wine vintage, it has enormous potential for aging.
Barrel Sample: 93-95

The 2017 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Blanc is a winner and has a racy, concentrated, age-worthy vibe that's going to benefit from bottle age. Tart peach, pineapple, white flowers, and a terrific minerality all flow to a medium-bodied, elegant, concentrated white that's flawlessly balanced. It shows the elegant, tight, yet classic style of the vintage. Rating: 94+

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.
