2015 Reynon Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château Reynon Blanc has a crisp Granny Smith apple and limestone-scented bouquet that is linear and focused, yet bounding full of energy. The palate is medium-bodied with a lively, citrus-driven entry backed by hints of pineapple and guava. Harmonious from start to finish and with impressive substance, this is a great Reynon Blanc from Denis Dubourdieu.

2015 Grand Bateau Blanc, Bordeaux

This blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon is a stellar value from Bordeaux. Grapes are hand-harvested and the juice undergoes a cold soak before 75% of it is barrel fermented and the other 25% is fermented in stainless steel. Crisp and mineral with vanilla tones on the nose, the palate is nicely rounded and full with citrus and tropical fruit. It is delicious with lighter foods and also quite refreshing on its own.

Another of the fine wines of Dominique Robin, Le Blanc de la Graside is sourced from a vineyard three miles south of Libourne that is planted with 60-year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines. Grapes are harvested at full maturity and aged in casks to round out the wine's generous profile, while it retains a mineral-driven finish. Superb buy.

The palate is crisp on the entry, the acidity not as shrill as some of its peers, thus rendering it a more 'languid' Pessac-Léognan.

96 points James Suckling: "Energetic white with sliced-apple, lemon and green-papaya aromas. Full-bodied, very vibrant, creamy, dense and powerful. So contrasty. Love it. Don’t miss this. 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Semillon. Drink or hold." (2/2017) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This second wine of whites from both Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion is both rich and intensely crisp. It has a fine blend between great acidity and grapefruit fruit and a more tropical element. The tangy texture is taut with a mineral edge. Drink from 2020. (RV)" (4/2017) 92 points Vinous: "The château's second white wine, the 2014 Le Clarte de Haut-B ...Read More »

2015 Clos Marsalette Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Wine Spectator: "A textbook version, with yellow apple and gooseberry notes, mixed with thyme and verbena details. Offers a pure, lively finish. (Web-2016, JM)" 91-92 points James Suckling: "Tight and minerally with dried pear and apple character. Lemon too. Full body. Beautiful." (4/2016) 90-92 points Vinous: "Von Neipperg's 2015 Clos Marsalette Blanc offers lovely depth, texture and consistency. Candied lemon, white flowers, mint and orchard fruit meld together in an expressive, appealing white endowed with tons of personality. The 35% Sémillon, blocked malo style and lees stirring give the wine much of its signature textur ...Read More »

2015 Cos d'Estournel Blanc, Bordeaux (Pre-Arrival)

94-95 points James Suckling: "A dense and pretty white with sliced apple, pear and pineapple. Full body and very fresh. Tangy and bright. Lovely energy to this." (4/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cos d'Estournel Blanc is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon, picked between 14 and 29 September at a low 29 hl/ha. It has a charming bouquet with lime flower, apricot blossom and just a touch of blood orange. There is a sprightliness to this wine. The palate is crisp and fresh with a fine bead of acidity, plenty of tension here and perhaps more precision than previous vintages that I have tasted ...Read More »

2015 Pape Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

95-96 points James Suckling: "So dense and powerful. Layered and chewy. Phenolic. Full body, dried apple and pear. Pineapple too. Goes on for minutes." (3/2016) 93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wood is showing strongly here, giving a layer of spice to the generous perfumed fruit. It is going to be a rich, full wine, packed with fruit." (5/2016) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* This relies on a fairly obvious oak treatment, with lush macadamia, butter and brioche notes coating the core of creamed apple and melon flavors. Shows threads of verbena and chamomile, but they're way in the background. For fans of the style only. (Web Only— ...Read More »

2014 Haut-Bergey Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tight, nervy and textured, this wine is still masking its fruit with upfront toast flavors. It does, however, have great richness at the end that promises good things to come. (RV)" (3/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This has a vigorous feel, with gooseberry, lemon pith and honeysuckle notes that play off each other, picking up a lively quinine streak through the finish. Drink now through 2019. (JM, Web-2017)" Jancis Robinson: "Racy and with decent balance and density. Quite appetising and savoury. Wet stones. Decent persistence. (JR)" (3/2015)

2014 Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Full of ripe fruit, opulent and concentrated, this is a fabulous and impressive wine. It has a beautiful line of acidity balanced with ripe fruits. The wood aging is subtle, just a hint of smokiness and toast. This is one of those wines, from a great white wine vintage, that will age many years. Drink from 2024. (RV)" (4/2017) 97 points James Suckling: "The aromas are endless here with stones, green apples and limes. Full-bodied, tight and dense yet so agile and lively. Stones, grass and cream. It goes on for minutes. A classic white Haut-Brion here. More Semillon ...Read More »

2015 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Very balanced and fresh with stone and dried peach aromas and flavors. Very aromatic. Full body, fine phenolics and licorice. Show power and richness." (3/2016) 93-96 points Vinous: "The 2015 La Mission Haut-Bion Blanc is deep, powerful and intense, yet with no excess heaviness. A vertical, structured white, the 2015 possesses remarkable depth along with a spherical expression of fruit that is a joy to behold. The aromatics haven't begun to develop yet, but there is time for that. Plenty of time. This is an especially rich, concentrated white that is going to require a bit of b ...Read More »
