A blend of 23.8% Sauvignon Blanc and 76.2% Sémillon, the 2017 Blanc takes its time uncoiling from its tightly wound state, slowly revealing nuances of lemon tart, lime blossoms, green mango and jasmine with touches of cedar chest and sea spray. Medium-bodied, the palate has a beautifully expressed, quiet intensity, featuring loads of subtle mineral and citrus layers, finishing long and chalky. Beautiful. (LPB)
Candied lemon with sliced apples, pears and stones with some lemon-grass and bay-leaf notes. Full-bodied, creamy and textured with a tight and focused palate that goes on for minutes. Shows great length and beauty. Very tight. Needs at least five years to open.
Creamy tropical-fruit flavors and a hint of toast give this wine an opulent character, with a pleasant herbal streak for added depth. From a great white-wine vintage, it has enormous potential for aging. (RV)
The 2017 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Blanc is a winner and has a racy, concentrated, age-worthy vibe that's going to benefit from bottle age. Tart peach, pineapple, white flowers, and a terrific minerality all flow to a medium-bodied, elegant, concentrated white that's flawlessly balanced. It shows the elegant, tight, yet classic style of the vintage. 94+
The 2017 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is rich, deep and powerful, just like it was from barrel. A white of real substance, the Blanc offers tons of Sémillon resonance before finishing with tremendous intensity. (AG)
Simple lemon and lime fruit on the nose. Piercing, precise and fresh but a light creamy texture and all quite primary though you have the weight and richness of the Sémillon balanced by the crisp Sauvignon Blanc, opening to a waxy richness. Very long. (JH) 18/20 points
