Château Haut-Brion white wine is synonymous with uniqueness, excellence and aromatic intensity. Only 400 cases are produced per vintage. The unique blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon gives this Graves wine a concentration and breadth that is atypical of a dry white Bordeaux. The wine is a beautiful pale yellow in color. The first nose is intense, marked by Sauvignon, ethereal yet ripe, delicate and fresh. When swirled in the glass, there is an incredible impression of “densification” and complexity: the Sémillon clearly acts as an aroma enhancer, beyond a doubt. The first impression is generous, fragrant and flavorful. The wine then extends, displaying an outstanding length that continues to gain momentum, revealing spicy nuances. This Haut-Brion confirms that years marked by a very hot and dry summer can produce white wines of incrediblefreshness and power of flavors. One of the most beautiful Haut-Brion whites, very similar to the 2017, and undoubtedly a future 1993, one of the most successful vintages of recent years.

Blend: 64.4% Sauvignon Blanc, 35.6% Semillon

This Haut-Brion 2019 Blanc is a blend of 64.4% Sauvignon Blanc and 35.6% Semillon, harvested from the 29th of August to the 9th of September. The estimated label alcohol degree is 14%. The nose is quite subdued to begin, soon unfurling to offer fragrant scents of orange blossoms, white peaches and lime cordial with hints of oyster shell, fresh ginger, pomelo and kumquat plus a suggestion of jasmine. The medium to full-bodied palate has a seducing hint of oiliness texturing the intense citrus and chalky layers, lifted by bold freshness and finishing with incredible length and perfume. Just stunning.

Clear difference in personality from La Mission Blanc, tons of rich texture, but more pulled together, with the Sauvignon making its mark. Feels poised at exactly the right level of ripeness, where there is so much flavour, it drips with citrus and nectarine alongside hints of green leaf and juice. One to savour, a brilliant Haut Brion Blanc with mouthwatering salinity on the finish.

The richness of the Sauvignon Blanc in this wine is outstanding. Combined with a tight mineral texture and the purity of the fruits, the wine is on the cusp of something seriously great. It will certainly age over many years.

This is crazy quality. The depth and intensity is really something. It is so compact and powerful with such intensity and density. Energy. So structured. Full-bodied. Layered and superb. Like a great Montrachet from a great vintage, but so Haut Brion. Speechless. Perfect wine.

The 2019 Château Haut-Brion Blanc is a more Sauvignon Blanc-dominated white that includes 36% Semillon. Its light gold hue is followed by a bright, racy Sauvignon nose of crushed limes, caramelized grapefruit, white flowers, and subtle minerality. It's incredibly pure, vibrant, and crystalline on the nose. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied and shows the richer side of the vintage with good mid-palate density, bright, juicy, clean acidity, flawless balance, and a great finish. It's a beautiful, elegant, seamless Blanc that will evolve for 20 or 30 years if well stored. Bravo! Best after 2022.
