2019, Château La Mission Haut Brion Blanc, PÉSSAC-LEOGNAN


The 2019 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc has quite an intense nose with apple blossom, flint and slice Williams pear scents that develop with aeration. The palate is well-balanced with fine acidity, quite steely with a gooseberry and spicy finish that is driven by the Sauvignon Blanc. It's backward and close but the breeding is there. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. 94+ Neal Martin, Vinous (2023).

The 2019 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is every bit as impressive as it was last year. I am blown away by the tension and crystalline precision. Citrus peel, crushed rocks, mint, sage and slate abound. Deceptive in its airy, mid-weight feel, the Blanc possesses sizzling energy and tons of depth that continues to reveal itself over time. Impressive. 96 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2022).

Drinking Window: 2024 - 2038
