    A Structured and Precise Classified Growth

    In 2016, the fresh nights and warm days allowed the wines to develop rich colours and fruit flavours. In Pessac-LeognanChateau La Mission Haut-Brion white 2016 is the culmination of these characteristics. Harvested between September 5th and 13th, this blend of 62.7% Sauvignon Blanc and 37.3% Semillon is the expression of excellent organoleptic qualities. 

    La Mission Haut-Brion white 2016 is yellow with green reflections. The intensely fruity nose presents menthol and freshness. Upon aeration, notes of citrus and white peach reveal themselves. The attack is precise and juicymixing power and fattiness. This Graves Classified Growth is atypical due to its Sauvignon blend (a first). Very nice potential for ageing

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Conditions were a little challenging for the Sémillon this year, and the blend of the La Mission Haut-Brion 2016 Blanc is, unusually, dominated by Sauvignon Blanc (62.7%) with 37.3% Sémillon. It reveals subtle notions of mandarin peel, fresh grapefruit and pineapple with touches of crushed rocks, white peaches and coriander seed. Medium-bodied, the palate has a racy line of freshness cutting through the vibrant citrus and tropical layers, finishing on a lingering mineral note. Considering the challenges, this is a very impressive result!
