Chateau Haut Brion Blanc Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe 2014
2014 Chateau Haut Brion Blanc, Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe,750ml - A stunning example of the quality that can be achieved with white Bordeaux, this wine is elegant and refined, with a delicate bouquet of lemon zest, white flowers, and wet stone. On the palate, it is crisp and refreshing, with a long and satisfying finish.
Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider
The mineral-driven grapefruit, lemongrass, flowers, citrus rind, honey and vanilla arouse your curiosity and senses while the layers of citrus peel, lemon custard and honey lure you in for a long, fresh, unforgettable, zippy, expansive, citrus drenched, bright finish. The wine was made from a blend of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon, reaching 14.75% alcohol with a pH of 3.2. 97 Pts
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
The 2014 Haut Brion Blanc has a very pure bouquet with scents of peach skin, Cornice pear and those resinous/candle wax aromas that I remarked upon during en primeur. This has more sophistication than the La Mission Haut Brion Blanc, a little more tension. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry, perfect acidity, wonderful tension and energy. Notes of orange pith, a squeeze of lime, flint and smoke are conveyed on the finish that demonstrates outstanding persistence. This is a great Haut Brion Blanc, but it will require a decade in the bottle before it will show what it can really do. - Reviewed by Neal Martin
