Very sweet Sémillon nose - almost honey! A hint of cat - very mineral. The Sémillon is all on the nose at the moment and the palate seems dominated by Sauvignon character. Lots to chew on. 17.5/20 points.
The 2015 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is soft, open-knit and wonderfully expressive. Scents of peach, apricot and white pepper meld together in an effortless, totally gracious white that will drink well early. This is a strong showing from the Clarté, Haut-Brion's second white wine. (AG)
This is effectively a combined second wine of Chateau Haut-Brion Blanc and La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, which prior to 2009 was known as Les Plantiers du Haut-Brion. A blend of 27% Sauvignon Blanc and 73% Semillon and redolent of ripe peaches, pink grapefruit and baking bread with touches of orange blossoms and crushed stones, the intense, satiny textured 2015 La Clarté de Haut-Brion Blanc offers up a lively palate laced with mineral accents and finishing with impressive persistence.

This second wine comes from both La Mission Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion white parcels. This is a fine and ripe while also showing an herbal character. Citrus and yellow fruits work in harmony. (RV)
This has a flattering, creamy feel, with lemon curd and creamed yellow apple notes gilded by honeysuckle, fennel and verbena flavors. Light kiwi and green plum tones add range through the finish, which sports a broad swath of salted butter. Best from 2019 through 2027. (JM)
Lots of minerals and stones here. Full-bodied with phenolic tension and lime, lemon and chalk flavors. Layered and joyous. Just the right lees stirring. Why wait? Drink now.
