Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

100 JS / 98+ WA / 95 VM / 95 WS

A white of incredible energy and depth of fruit with a grapefruit, stone and peach character. Some hints of minerals and tropical fruit too. It's full and agile with a great backbone of acidity. A blend of 60% sauvignon blanc and 40% sémillon. Usually inverted at 60% semillon and 40% sauvignon. This underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged 14 months in new wood. A truly phenomenal white. 100 points. - James Suckling

This blockbuster blend of 62% Sauvignon Blanc and 38% Semillon has absolutely amazing texture, with superb lemon butter, crushed rock, quince and marmalade notes buttressed by hints of orange zest and citrus oil. Rich and full-bodied, with a sensational fragrance, this is an exquisite, full-throttle white to drink over the next 30+ years. Utterly profound! - Robert Parker

You could argue that the 2009 Haut-Brion Blanc is not a subtle wine. It has an explosive bouquet loaded with more glycerine than the example that I encountered back in 2013. This feels richer and more decadent, laden with apricot, crème brûlée and yellow plums. What it might lack in definition it makes up for in sheer gung-ho. The palate follows suit. It is powerful and deep, a Haut-Brion Blanc firing on all cylinders with a sense of lusciousness and decadence – yet there is balance here. There is nothing excessive and there remains that tang of lemongrass on the finish. Those who like hedonism could broach this now. Alternatively give it 10 years in bottle because it will evolve into a fascinating wine. Tasted at a white Bordeaux-themed private dinner in London.  July 2018 

Very young, with a plume of chalk leading the way for a huge core of macadamia nut, blanched almond, jasmine, white peach, salted butter, quinine and shortbread notes, which are seamlessly woven and very focused through the finish. Paraffin and brioche hang in the background and should emerge more after cellaring. This is built to go the distance. Best from 2014 through 2034. 580 cases made. - JM, Wine Spectator
