Producer Tasting Notes

The colour of this wine is pale yellow with greenish glints. It is concentrated and already complex on the first nose: fruity notes (peach, citrus, lime) and floral scents (light hint of lilac, jasmine) at the same time. The first taste is very rich, infused with tight, compact substance. The wine then reveals itself, pleasant-tasting, filling the palate, rich, deep and persistent. This is most definitely a splendid Haut-Brion white.


Vineyard Notes

With a terroir of less than three hectares and a confidential annual production, Château Haut-Brion Blanc is the most sought-after dry white wine in Bordeaux. This vintage mixes almost equal both Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties.


Winemaking

The ambition of the Larrieu family, former owners of the Château, was to obtain the aromatic fullness of a liquoreux in a dry wine. Their dream has been fulfilled. The vines in the vineyard are 52.6% Sémillon and 47.4% Sauvignon Blanc. Then the fermentation is done in oak barrels for a period of 9 to 12 months of which 50% of the barrels are new. Average production of Château Haut-Brion white is 450 to 650 cases per year.
