    (76% semillon and 24% sauvignon blanc; 46 h/h yield): Bright, pale yellow-gold. Subtly complex aromas of white stone fruits, lime, nut oil, nutmeg, menthol and bitter grapefruit. A huge, deep wine with laser-like acidity lifting the highly concentrated tropical fruit, white peach, spice and herb flavors. As youthfully chewy, thick and palate-staining as this is, it's also wonderfully light on its feet, showing uncommon class. One of the ten best Bordeaux wines of the year.

    A white with a fabulous minerality and citrus character as well as hints of papaya and other tropical fruits. Full body with a wonderful backbone and length. Focused and powerful. Half sauvignon blanc and half semillon.

    From the property formerly known as Laville Haut-Brion, the 2013 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is one of the great dry whites of the vintage. Aromas of tangerine oil, caramelized grapefruit, figs and honeysuckle soar from this medium to full-bodied, rich, concentrated white wine. With terrific acidity as well as a vibrant, medium- to full-bodied mouthfeel and finish, it should provide immense pleasure for at least 2-3 decades.

  • "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.
