This full-bodied blend of 54% Sauvignon Blanc and 46% Semillon has a level of concentration and intensity that makes it the dry white wine of the vintage. Loads of minerality, a hint of subtle spice, but mostly just pure orange marmalade, candle wax, honeysuckle and caramelized melons make for a full-bodied, distinctive style of wine to drink over the next 50+ years.

A blend of 35% Semillon and 54% Sauvignon Blanc, the Haut-Brion Blanc has a little more attack on the nose compared to the La Mission Blanc with notes of grapefruit, linden, a touch of brioche and cooking apple. The Semillon is pronounced even though the blend is more Sauvignon Blanc. The palate is well defined with more volume and flavour than the La Mission Blanc, with lovely citrus lemon, crushed stone and green lime flavours that persist long in the mouth. Excellent. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This is insane. I am speechless. It twists your palate with so much character and intensity. Better than the 2005 and I gave it 100 points. Full yet refined. Intense yet reserved. It’s a wine of intense contrasts of tropical fruits and citrus. Bright and intense acidity, but it’s all in balance. jamessuckling.com

This shows more clarity now than the La Mission white, with bright honeysuckle, green fig, verbena and green plum notes. The gorgeous finish just glides through, with the cut buried deep. Long and stony, with impressive definition already. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

46% Sémillon, 54% Sauvignon Blanc. Slightly more yellow than La Mission but still greenish gold. Broad and honeyed on the nose (the Haut-Brion whites always prove supremacy of terroir over variety). Massive and broad and pungent. SO far from New Zealand! A bit less distinctive than the La Mission Blanc 2010 but a great wine. jancisrobinson.com

Slightly richer and broader fruit than La Mission, superb finesse over a fleshy ripeness and perfect harmony. Drink 2013-25. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

The 2010 Haut Brion Blanc has notes of lively grapefruit, apricots, and peach, and the 54% Sauvignon Blanc adds freshness and an herbaceous dimension to the wine. Although 2010 was a dry growing season, the vines are between 35 and 40 years old, and were able to find water in the depths of the gravel and limestone soil. Though its complex flavours are fairly restrained, the wine has incredible depth and body and leaves one marveling at a truly aristocratic Haut Brion Blanc! asianpalate.com
