Wine Spectator ~ 95 Points

"What a nose, with fresh pineapple, mineral, toasty oak, apricot and other fresh fruits. Full and very structured, with a tight yet thick mouthfeel. Long and flavorful. Really hiding it now, but it's all there."

2006 VINTAGE

95 It is always interesting to taste this wine next to its stablemate, Laville Haut-Brion. While Laville has 80% Semillon in it, giving it more fat and concentration, Haut-Brion is 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Semillon. This is a crisp yet powerful wine, full-bodied, with great minerality and a subtle smokiness intermixed with hints of quince, white currant, orange skin, and lemon custard. Long, rich, and tightly knit, with good acidity and no evidence of any oak whatsoever despite the use of 100% new French oak, this wine is set for a long life as well.

94 After the 2003, here is the Haut-Brion white that gave me the strongest impression at a primeur wine tasting. The nose is fine, but a bit discreet. Full mouth on attack, very, very fruity in the middle. The wine has a taste of lemon and marron glacé. It is supple with very particular fat and remarkable balance. It finishes long and complex with flavors always a bit discreet. The construction of the body, especially, impresses me.
95 The white wine from Haut-Brion is always one of the stars of the Pessac-Léognan whites, and this great white year is no exception. It’s the fruit that leads, and behind this the structure follows. The wood is an essential adjunct to the fruit, a spice and toast touch to the recipe.  — R.V.
