Chateau Haut Brion Blanc 2016 - Case of 6 Bottles (75cl)
The Haut Brion 2016 Blanc is picked from 1-13 September. I found a little more complexity and minerality here compared to the La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc this year, scents of chalk and lime flower complementing the citrus fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, notes of lime cordial, orange zest and grapefruit, almost flinty towards the finish that lingers long in the mouth with great vigor from start to finish.
