2017 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1367010 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 23.8% Sauvignon Blanc and 76.2% Sémillon, the 2017 Blanc takes its time uncoiling from its tightly wound state, slowly revealing nuances of lemon tart, lime blossoms, green mango and jasmine with touches of cedar chest and sea spray. Medium-bodied, the palate has a beautifully expressed, quiet intensity, featuring loads of subtle mineral and citrus layers, finishing long and chalky. Beautiful. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Candied lemon with sliced apples, pears and stones with some lemon-grass and bay-leaf notes. Full-bodied, creamy and textured with a tight and focused palate that goes on for minutes. Shows great length and beauty. Very tight. Needs at least five years to open. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Creamy tropical-fruit flavors and a hint of toast give this wine an opulent character, with a pleasant herbal streak for added depth. From a great white-wine vintage, it has enormous potential for aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Blanc is a winner and has a racy, concentrated, age-worthy vibe that's going to benefit from bottle age. Tart peach, pineapple, white flowers, and a terrific minerality all flow to a medium-bodied, elegant, concentrated white that's flawlessly balanced. It shows the elegant, tight, yet classic style of the vintage. 94+ Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is rich, deep and powerful, just like it was from barrel. A white of real substance, the Blanc offers tons of Sémillon resonance before finishing with tremendous intensity. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Simple lemon and lime fruit on the nose. Piercing, precise and fresh but a light creamy texture and all quite primary though you have the weight and richness of the Sémillon balanced by the crisp Sauvignon Blanc, opening to a waxy richness. Very long. (JH) 18/20 points Inner quote mark (4/2018)

K&L Notes

93 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2017 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc was picked 22 to 31 August. It has a well defined bouquet with honeysuckle, jasmine and light orange blossom scents. The palate is very well balanced with lime, orange zest and a saline undertow. Moderate length with an attractive waxy texture and a resinous, slightly nutty aftertaste. This is another excellent white from the Clarence Dillon stable, though the Haut-Brion Blanc just has the edge." (02/2020)
