Both La Mission and Haut Brion Blanc are incredibly accomplished, sit-up-and-take-notice whites this year, showcasing the potential brilliance and longevity of white wines in 2017. The Sauvignon Blanc comes through as a slight wildness on the attack because the intensity is just so clear, with touches of white flowers and chamomile. It hits all the right notes, evolving into wonderfully polished flavours of white peach, fleshy apricot and rosemary that just keep on coming, hitting your palate with mouthwatering precision. La Mission has all the finessed aromatics on the attack, while Haut Brion has the length. 3.22pH.

More creamy and spicy than the Mission Haut-Brion Blanc. More rounded but also more piercing from the Sauvignon Blanc. Quite a different style, lacks the waxiness of the Mission but is more persistent and more powerful. More depth yet without the same richness as in the Mission.
