The 2019 Haut-Brion Blanc is a regal white of uncommon complexity and nuance. Textured and resonant in feel, the 2019 saturates the palate with a host of citrus and mineral-drenched flavors. White pepper, chalk, mint and lifted floral overtones all develop in the glass, but it is the wine's textural resonance that stands out most. A thrilling white, the 2019 simply has it all. In a word: magnificent. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2020)

Elegantly cellared white BDX. Subtle golden fruits, opulent and fatty texture.

Soft Sauvignon freshness with hints of grapefruit and something almost tropical. A lovely rounded middle with real complexity and a hint of sweetness. Very fresh and refined. And super long.

Truely a great wine, leathery, led pencil, peppery. Tannins totally soft and integrated. Extremely feminin wine. Not the greatest haut brion as it misses a bit of punch but this is an outstanding wine.

First growth SB cuz we country clubbin’. Viscosity and complexity for days. Light amber in the mid day sun, Yeasty wet barley aromatics, candied pear, marzipan and honey (yes! @David L you are spot on there). This isn’t for everybody and it doesn’t have light clean lines but it is a perfect representation of this Bordeaux blend and I enjoyed it while putting horrendously with @Mike R @Shawn R @David L it’s been so damn fun reconnecting with @Joe Lucca @Martin G Rivard @Carl Fischer @Kirk Alexander and meeting Rutgers finest @ADAM STROMFELD
