Château La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc

Previously known as Château Laville Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion is a wine for the initiated. This dry white wine expresses all the distinctive features of a Graves wine, specific to Sémillon grown on these renowned terroirs.

tasting notes

White La Mission Haut-Brion has a very elegant nose with floral and white peach nuances.
The wine starts out full and fruity on the palate.
A lovely richness coats the mouth and leaves a wonderful impression of volume and well-delineated flavours.

The weather

The year 2015 appears to be the warmest and sunniest, throughout our country, since the beginning of meteorological statistics. A long heat wave and dry period allowed to achieve excellent flowering conditions until the arrival, in August, of miraculous rains.This rain enabled the vines to maintain the necessary water reserves and to provide requisite nourishment for perfect ripeness. The harvest began in September under a clear blue sky. Thanks to this ideal weather, we were able to wait for optimum ripeness for each grape variety. All the conditions are there to allow 2015 to join the greatest vintages of Bordeaux.
