Chateau Haut Brion Blanc Pessac Leognan 1st Grand Cru Classe 2013
2013 Chateau Haut Brion Blanc, Pessac Leognan 1th Grand Cru Classe,750ml - This white Bordeaux is a shining example of the elegance and finesse that can be achieved with Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The nose is rich and inviting, with notes of lemon curd and honey, while the palate is creamy and textured, with a long and lingering finish.
Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider
Lively, bright, sweet, just squeezed, yellow citrus fruits, with searing acidity, the wine makes me think of fresh grapefruit juice drizzled over rocks in the hot sun.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
The 2013 Haut Brion Blanc, which is a blend of 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 34% Semillon, has a more expressive bouquet than the 2013 La Mission Haut Brion Blanc, with mineral-rich citrus fruit, grapefruit and honeysuckle - all very vivacious. The palate is very well balanced, intense and exuberant with lanolin-tinged citrus fruit, dried pineapple, almond, sweet fig and a dash of lemongrass on the long finish. This is just a superb Haut Brion Blanc that should give two or three decades of pleasure. - Reviewed by Neal Martin
