Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(RP=96+) Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting. The 2012 Haut-Brion Blanc has an entrancing bouquet of honeysuckle, fresh pear, and greengage that is beautifully defined and seamlessly enmeshed with the oak. The palate is well balanced with just a patina of new oak, smooth and harmonious, fine minerality here with a spicy finish that leaves the tongue-tingling. This is very well crafted and it will just get better and better. Yes, my drinking window does advise ten years in bottle, since in my experience only this and the late Laville Haut-Brion age so magnificently. Therefore, that score may well arise in the future if I am ever afforded a chance to re-taste this superb white Bordeaux. Tasted January 2016.

(WS=96) This displays an impressive profile, with rich white peach, salted butter, macadamia nut, tangerine, and warm brioche notes that show superior cut and definition, thanks to a terrific quinine accent that ripples on and on through the gorgeous finish. Should be rather long-lived, too. Best from 2017 through 2030. 574 cases made.

(JS=95) This is soft and round textured yet shows bright and lively acidity. It's full-bodied, layered, and beautiful. Sandalwood, dried apples, and lemon rind. Layered and dense. Give it two or three years of bottle age.

(AG=94+) The 2012 Haut-Brion Blanc is utterly captivating from the very first taste. An intensely mineral-infused bouquet makes a strong opening statement. Gunpowder, graphite, lemon oil, sage, and mint open up with time in the glass. Rich and expansive on the palate, the 2012 possesses remarkable depth and nuance. It should drink well for several decades. Today, the 2012 is superb, but it should be even better in another few years.
