Château La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc
Yellow with green highlights.
The nose is very fine and fruity, with a touch of lemon.
White peach overtones appear when the wine is swirled in the glass.
Very elegant. Begins very full-bodied, rich, and soft on the palate, developing subtle juicy flavours.
One of the characteristics of 2011 was an extremely dry spring. Based on the measured rainfall in April, May and June this was the driest spring since 1949.Happily, summer brought some rain which allowed the vine to continue its growth. With a dry September, we were able to harvest in optimal conditions.
