Laville-Haut-Brion Blanc Bordeaux Blanc Wine 1989

Member Review by Robert Parker:

This utterly mind-blowing effort from Laville-Haut-Brion, with its decadent bouquet of honeyed, super ripe melons, figs, and toasty new oak is a real turn on. In the mouth, the wine is stunningly rich, concentrated, and intense, with a texture more akin to a Grand Cru white Burgundy than an austere white Graves. Acidity is low and the alcohol level is high, suggesting this wine will have to be drunk in its first 10-15 years. For pure power, as well as a sumptuous texture, this may well be the most dramatic Laville-Haut-Brion ever produced. Production was tiny; only 900 cases were made.
