    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    On the reductive style, with gunsmoke and flint, reserved but evident flesh to the fruit, captures the contrasting freshness and intensity of a great white wine, and delivers a feeling of being raised up through the palate. Exceptional quality, 3.2ph. 40% new oak.

    The 2023 Haut-Brion Blanc was picked from August 21 until September 5. This is very detailed on the nose with orchard fruit, dewy meadow and light Mirabelle scents—very poised and focused. The palate is very well balanced with an irresistible texture, lightly spiced with impressive depth on the finish. It's the umami sensation that really lifts this superb Haut-Brion Blanc.

    Château Haut-Brion

    Haut Brion has arguably been the most consistent First Growth over the past thirty years. The property can be traced back to the 14th century although the current owners can track their lineage back to 1935, when the American financier, Clarence Dillon bought the rather beleaguered estate. Now, Clarence Dillon’s great grandson, Prince Robert of Luxembourg presides. The other name synonymous with Haut Brion is that of the Delmas family. Three generations have made Haut Brion their life’s work, George (1921-1960), Jean Bernard (1960-2003) and Jean-Philippe (2003-to present).

    Situated upon two gravel croupes, this exceptional terroir in the suburbs of Bordeaux benefits from the heat of the surrounding buildings, which enables the vines to achieve perfect ripeness in even the most challenging vintages. Due to the extra warmth, harvest dates are usually amongst the earliest in Bordeaux. The vineyards are planted with 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc for the reds and Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon for the whites. Aside from the Grand vins, the estate produces a second red wine, Clarence de Haut Brion, previously called Bahans de Haut Brion and a second white wine, Clarté de Haut Brion, previously named Plantiers de Haut Brion.
