2020 Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1549839 97-98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very perfumed with floral, citrus and stone aromas, as well as hints of grapefruit. It’s full-bodied and seamless in texture. Extremely long and fine-grained. 72% sauvignon and 28% semillon. Normally 50/50. Inner quote mark (4/2021)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 71.4% Sauvignon Blanc and 28.6% Semillon, harvested 20th to 27th August and with an alcohol of 13.9%, the 2020 Haut-Brion Blanc slowly unfurls to reveal notes of fresh pears, spiced apple slices, orange zest and lemongrass, plus touches of wet pebbles, dillseed and baking bread. The medium-bodied palate wears its lightly spicy apple and pear layers with grace and sophistication, supported by a racy backbone and subtly creamy texture, finishing long and mineral laced. It will need time, but there's no doubting it's a knock-out. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Haut-Brion Blanc is a wine of extraordinary precision and nuance. White flowers, mint, chalk, white pepper and citrus peel soar out of the glass. Weightless and nuanced, Haut-Brion Blanc is so striking. I especially admire its delineation and cut. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

61.4% Sauvignon Blanc, 28.6% Semillon. I love this wine. Tight on the nose and maybe a bit of reduction but there’s a minerally drive apparent right off the bat. As you move to the palate, there’s a round and luscious hedonism that shows notes of almond paste, marzipan, sweet pineapple, and crème brûlée, all buoyed by a freshness from the minerality and acid drive.
