Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 92

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The Haut Brion Blanc 2008 has a waxy, almond and coconut scented bouquet with good intensity, if showing slight oxidative notes in the background. The palate is well balanced with a fresh, vigorous entry and fine acidity, whilst the finish is very waxy in texture with intense Semillon notes. Difficult to penetrate now, but it should age well. N.B. A second bottle showed a lot of combined sulphur. Tasted January 2012. [Neal Martin, 01/01/2012]

Vinous – 91-94

(a 55/45 blend of semillon and sauvignon blanc) Medium-deep straw-gold, deeper than its stablemate Laville Haut-Brion. Rich nose offers fresh lemon, apple and pear aromas complicated by beeswax. Then less rich and broad on the palate than the nose had me expecting, but beautifully pure in its precise apple, pear and citrus flavors. Finishes very long and creamy, with a distinct lemony twist and a mineral element. [Ian D’Agata, 05/01/2009]
