Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château La Mission Haut Brion Blanc, Pessac Léognan, 2019
ABV:
14.5%
95/100
Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Hard to fault this gorgeous wine, with white peach, citrus, fleshy pear and apricot pit, along with the fennel and crushed sage that add a welcome touch of bitterness. A crisp pulse of minerality keeps things moving through the palate, and this is seductive and vibrant, playing with you and keeping you engaged.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

A blend of 69.9% Semillon and 30.1% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2019 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc wafts out with subtle scents of lemongrass, lime leaves, and green apples with hints of honeysuckle, coriander seed, and wet slate. Medium-bodied, elegant, and refreshing, the palate has tightly wound citrus fruit flavors and a chalky finish.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2019 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc has quite an intense nose with apple blossom, flint and slice Williams pear scents that develop with aeration. The palate is well-balanced with fine acidity, quite steely with a gooseberry and spicy finish that is driven by the Sauvignon Blanc. It's backward and close but the breeding is there. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Haut Brion’s sister property has a habit of trumping its more illustrious sibling. Owned by Domaine Clarence Dillon S.A., La Mission’s vineyards lie in the same suburbs as those of Haut Brion on deep gravel croupes interspersed with clay. The cepage is not dissimilar in the red wine (48% Cabernet, 45% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) although the Haut Brion Blanc (formally Laville Haut Brion) has a lot more Semillon in the blend than Haut Brion Blanc.

Stylistically, La Mission Haut Brion rouges is more accessible and open than the deeply mineral and slightly introverted Haut Brion when young, but given time the Haut Brion will begin to show its power. Both wines reward long term aging to be at their best.
