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 :
The La Mission Haut Brion 2016 Blanc is a blend of 62.7% Sauvignon Blanc and 37.3% Sémillon picked from 5-13 September. It has a crisp bouquet with kiwi, grapefruit and cold stone aromas, although it does not convey the vigor or complexity of the 2015, due to the lower proportion of Sémillon. The palate is well balanced with a pleasant texture; there is orange zest, lime, a touch of stem ginger and a very satisfying, quite persistent finish. It is a well-made La Mission Haut Brion Blanc that should give 10-20 years of drinking pleasure.
