Fresh mixed citrus, passionfruit, starfruits, grapefruit. The 2010 La Mission Haut Brion Blanc has exotic notes of citrus, grapefruit, passion fruit and star fruit, with great depth of flavour and lifted fruit that carries through in the finish. There is depth from barrel fermentation and a hint of very well integrated oak. This wine is very vibrant and while it lacks the density and power of the Haut Brion Blanc, this wine is more about precision and detail. The high Sauvignon Blanc component will likely rise in the future since replantings are increasing the proportion of Sauvignon Blanc.by jeannie cho lee in 2011

POINTS
I love the lemon-lime, mineral and lilac character to this young white. It says great Montrachet but it’s dry white Bordeaux. Full and super minerally and racy. Intense and vibrant. Tangy. Like a red wine in structure. Very dense and beautiful.

POINTS
Some sulphur masks the fruit on the nose. Sweet start. Then an astringent finish and not really enough fruit weight to integrate the two. Disjointed. No persistence. But this will presumably improve. Jancis Robinson

POINTS
A staggeringly rich blend of 81% Semillon and the rest Sauvignon Blanc, this full-throttle, impressively endowed wine has good acidity, with hints of candle wax, mandarin orange marmalade, caramelized melons and lemon oil. It is a stunner and should last

POINTS
Sports some serious power, with dried melon and pineapple notes framing a core of Jonagold apple, lemon curd, green plum and heather. Extra tangerine and bitter almond notes flash through the finish, which is nicely toasty and needs some time to stretch o
