Château Haut-Brion Blanc
Beautiful pale-yellow colour with green highlights.
The nose is very intense, reminiscent of ripe Sauvignon Blanc.
With aeration, the incredibly aromatic bouquet shows hints of citrus, mango and spice.
This wine is powerful on the palate from the very first sip,
going on to reveal a long, flavoursome aftertaste.
