Château La Mission Haut-Brion




Pessac Léognan

Grape Variety:

Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Château La Mission Haut Brion, Blanc, Pessac Léognan, 2017

Tasting Note:

Wonderfully clear and pure on the nose, with precise notes of citrus pith and cut grass, then a rich oily concentrated attack on the palate as the dominant Semillon component asserts itself, with anise, lemon zest and concentrated essential citrus oil notes alongside green apricot and basil. Long, powerful and concentrated. Bigger framed than Haut Brion this year, with perhaps a shade less vitality and urgency about it. The blend of 76% Semillon and 24% Sauvignon Blanc was harvested between 22nd and 31st August.
