2006 Château Laville Haut-Brion Blanc, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan
Consumers believing that the range of great dry wines begins and ends in the Côte d’Or should think again! The breadth of perfume to be found in 2006 Laville is nothing less than astonishing. Lemon and grapefruit, passion-fruit and lime are here – and more besides. Flavoursmeld citrus with vanilla and minerals. So vital and spine-tingling. A splendid 86% Semillon, 14% Sauvignon Blanc partnership. Almost as rare as Haut-Brion Blanc with the same priorities when the allocation begins.
