Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

98 RP / 96 WS / 97-98 JS

Easily the top wine of Pessac-L'ognan, the 2012 from Haut-Brion has extraordinary flesh and intensity, with an unctuousness and thickness that is almost hard to believe for a dry white wine. The high proportion of Semillon in this blend has given the wine an almost liquid mandarin orange note intermixed with caramelized citrus, honeysuckle, fig and crushed rock. This absolutely profound dry white wine is full-bodied and capable of lasting 40-50 years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

This displays an impressive profile, with rich white peach, salted butter, macadamia nut, tangerine and warm briochenotes that show superior cut and definition, thanks to a terrific quinine accent that ripples on and on through the gorgeous finish. Should be rather long-lived as well. Best from 2017 through 2030. 574 cases made. James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

This is super subtle and dense yet so complex and beautiful for the great white of Haut-Brion. Its like a tightly wound ball of cashmere. The texture certainly is impressive. The aromas and flavors of dried fruits with papaya and passion fruit are rich yet very refined. A wine about precise contrasts. James Suckling
