A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Laville-Haut-Brion Blanc 750ml
(79% semillon and 21% sauvignon blanc) Light straw-green. Initially reticent nose needs coaxing to reveal aromas of orange blossom, lemon and minerals. Enters the mouth bright and fresh, with citrus and mineral flavors of sneaky concentration, but co... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Laville-Haut-Brion Blanc 750ml
An absolutely staggering vintage for this historic and tiny estate this 2006 has a huge nose of tropical fruit including pineapple as well as a liqueur of minerality with quince white citrus and a hint of subtle toast. Full-bodied with huge concentration an almost flinty mouthfeel zesty acidity and a monster finish this is a prodigious Laville Haut-Brion that needs about 10 years of cellaring and should last 30 or more years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
( 580) Very lemony with hints of vanilla and cream on the nose. Reminds me of a baby grand cru Burgundy. Full-bodied showing lots of coconut and toasty oak character with lemon curd on the finish. A bit ponderous and thick now but flavorful and structured. Powerful and layered. Best after 2011. 500 cases made. Wine Spectator.
