    (73% semillon and 27% sauvignon blanc): Pale straw-green. Lovely semillon aromas of white peach and beeswax complicated by lavender, jasmine and minerals. Multilayered and complex on the palate, showing more minerality to go with the very intense, pure flavors of peach, lemon and green fig. The sauvignon blanc really stands out on the long, deep finish. This very bright, focused wine is one of the stars of the vintage, red wines included.

    Offers a subtle brioche frame, with paraffin, verbena, lemon zest, white peach and chamomile notes. Gains steam through the finish, delivering a light kiss of toast. Long and alluring, this shows a white Burgundy-like ability to age, gaining richness and hints of white truffle along the way.

    The purity of fruit in this white is phenomenal. It's like looking through a thin, perfectly clear crystal. Aromas of sliced apples, lemons, fresh pineapples and lilacs. Full body but perfectly balanced between fruit and acidity. Mineral and intense. Lightly salty and bitter like a peach pit. Electrifying wine. Greatest white ever from here. It lasts for minutes on the palate. 73% sauvignon blanc and 27% semillon.

  • "What is still evident is that La Mission Haut-Brion is a wine of first-growth quality...It is unquestionably one of the world's most singular and distinctive wines." -Robert Parker, Bordeaux

    Founded in the 17th century, this property has long enjoyed renown and respect. In 1919, the Woltner family acquired the estate and set it on the road to stardom. Frederic Woltner, and then later his son Henri, shaped the dense, full-bodied, fruit-rich character that was to become this chateau's signature. Then, in 1983, amidst family bickering and financial woes, the chateau was purchased by Haut-Brion (Domaine de Clarence Dillon S.A.) and Jean Delmas was placed at the winemaking helm. Considered one of Bordeaux's greatest wines, Mission Haut-Brion, with patience, provides a sumptuous and lengthy tasting experience. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is the estate's second wine.
