Château Haut-Brion Blanc
Astonishing, brilliant, yellow colour, with green and gold highlights.
The very intense bouquet features floral, citrus, and white fruit aromas,
contributing to the wine’s extraordinary complexity.
The initial impression on the palate is attractively soft,
going on to reveal considerable tension and energy.
A veritable whirlwind of flavours reflects the multi-dimensional
character of this wine, which shows impressive length and breadth.
It is rare to taste a wine that has such a powerful impact on all the senses from start to finish.
2010 Château Haut-Brion Blanc is quite simply impressive.
A dry year with an arid summer. The weather during the growing season, from early April to late September, was the driest since 1949. This water deficit caused dehydration in the vines, concentrating the grape juice and producing the highest values ever measured, particularly in terms of sugar content.
