2012 Château Haut-Brion Blanc, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan
45% Sémillon, 55% Sauvignon Blanc. The delicate, fresh nose with its dominant notes of freshly cut grass and just a soupcon of hazelnuts in the background is once again almost misleading, such is the power of this wine on the palate. Absolutely divine, this wine boasts perfect balance with plenty of volume on the palate. It is tightly structured yet mellow and juicy, with aromas of lime, lemongrass and a hint of gooseberry cutting through the rich, beeswax-like texture. Very long and quite simply sublime!
