The scarcity of Château Haut-Brion’s white wine production drives demand. Generally, fewer than 800 cases are made per vintage. A blend of majority Semillon to Sauvignon Blanc, the Blanc sits at the pinnacle of the white wines of Bordeaux.
Fermentation of this white takes place on new oak, with further maturation on lees. With the complexity and sophistication of a Burgundy Grand Cru, it is lent even more prestige due to its extremely limited production.
Pale colour. Intense grapefruit/ lemon curd/ camomile aromas with vanilla notes. Sweet fruit/ lemon glade/ grapefruit flavours, supple and minerally. Finishes quite chalky and hard. 92-94 points, Langton's.
Wake up in the morning, grab a plate of ripe citrus and start squeezing grapefruit, lemon, lime and tangerine. Pick fresh flowers, pour it over rocks, add honey and a hint of ginger, and you have the perfume. Pack a magnum of wine into a single bottle to obtain incredible viscosity and concentration. Taste this elixir and allow it to explode in your mouth for well over 60 seconds! 97-100 points, Wine Cellar Insider.
