Château Haut-Brion Blanc
As in 1993, this vintage is characterized by its early ripening due to the very mild winter. A quite cold and humid Spring slowed down the vegetation a little. Summer was hot with several thunderstorms. The evenness of the flowering was also evident during the ripening. Some Rainfall in September accelerated the picking of a generally sound and well-ripened harvest.
