The undisputed king of Bordeaux's dry white wines. It is produced in miniscule quantities. 58.1% Sauvignon Blanc and 41.9% Semillon

The 2023 Haut-Brion Blanc is very detailed on the nose with orchard fruit, dewy meadow and light Mirabelle scents-very poised and focused. The palate is very well balanced with an irresistible texture, lightly spiced with impressive depth on the finish. It's the umami sensation that really lifts this superb Haut-Brion Blanc.
95-97 Neal Martin.

Fragrant notes of fresh pears, lime leaves, coriander seed, and crushed stones, soon opening out to fragrant scents of lemongrass and honeysuckle, with a touch of baking bread. The medium-bodied palate vibrates with energetic citrus flavours, with a satiny/chalky texture and a racy backbone, finishing with amazing length and depth.
95-97+ Lisa Perrotti-Brown.

On the reductive style, with gunsmoke and flint, reserved but evident flesh to the fruit, captures the contrasting freshness and intensity of a great white wine, and delivers a feeling of being raised up through the palate. Exceptional quality.
98 Jane Anson.
