"Tight, with lots of verbena, blanched almond, green fig and plantain notes. Sports some power too, with a dense, lightly toasty finish. This has focus and length for sure, but just needs to stretch out. Tasted non-blind." (WS)

"Composed of 81% Semillon and 19% Sauvignon Blanc, this 2010 exhibits crisp, zesty acids as well as a full-bodied mouthfeel offering lots of lanolin, sealing wax, honeyed Mandarin oranges and lemon oil. This sensational effort has 30-40 years of aging potential." (WA)

" 2010 La Mission Haut Brion Blanc blends 81% Semillon and 19% Sauvignon Blanc to produce a perfume of honey, fresh picked flowers, grilled nuts and citrus that gets your mouth ready for a big dose of fresh, buttery lemon, banana, grapefruit and guava flavors wiith zesty acidity and freshness that lingers." (JL)

"I love the lemon-lime, mineral and lilac character to this young white. It says great Montrachet but it’s dry white Bordeaux. Full and super minerally and racy. Intense and vibrant. Tangy. Like a red wine in structure. Very dense and beautiful.$$" (JS)
