The 2019 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc is a total stunner. Freshly cut flowers, mint, apple, citrus and sage are all finely cut in a chiseled, crystalline white of magnificent beauty. The Blanc is so deep and fully flavored, yet remains taut and light on its feet. It is a truly remarkable wine by any measure. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2020)

This wine is in a sweet spot for sure. Anise, earth, spices, tannins still grippy but not over the top.

Not a thing out of place, this should only get better with age.

Should've known. La Mission Haut Brion Blanc is the ultimate glazed ham wine. Fantastic combo. White Bordeaux is too under appreciated. And so versatile. The richness of the 09 vintage hasn't made this over the top. But just the right amount of decadence for a meal like this.

Dark plum and cherry, gravel, purple flowers. Bit softer than the Haut Brion, but still shows its class.

Excellent Semillon-heavy wine. Very youthful out of magnum.

It's hard to tell by the sample labels but this is the Blanc, 76% semillon, 24% Sauvignon. Exotic fruits, amazing texture, as good as it gets for this style, a joy to enjoy and hard to spit out!
