Château Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Blanc
Château Haut-Brion was the one and only estate outside of the Médoc and Sauternes to be bestowed 1st Growth status in the original classification of 1855. That reputation and standing has withstood over 150 years and can be tasted in what can only be described as 'blockbuster' white wine. A blend of 62% Sauvignon Blanc and 38% Semillon, this wine should be held up as the flag-bearer for all Bordeaux Blancs. Mind blowing texture is the trademark of 2009 along with superb flavours and aromas of lemon scented cream, orange skin and a touch of lanolin. The ageing propensity of this wine is not be underestimated and will last in a good cellar for at least 30 years.
Guigal Cotes du Rhone Blanc
Guigal produces an almost completely distinct Côtes du Rhône Blanc due to their Northern Rhône mindset. Wines under this general appellation are dominated by Southern Rhône grapes. Since 1991 the Guigals have searched for and encouraged plantings of Viognier for their Côtes du Rhône Blanc, a grape that was nearly extinct in the middle of the last century. This wine is both fresh and rich, with complex aromas and flavours of honeysuckle, pear, and kiwi, and a deep mineral streak. It is a beautiful, seamless wine that represents unbelievable value.
Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Pessac-Léognan
Domaine de Chevalier uses traditional methods when making their flavoursome white blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Fermentation occurs in oak casks and is then aged for 18th in oak, some of which is new. This practice was abandoned by many in Graves, only to be (rightfully) regenerated to allow wines of substance and character to be produced once again. Chevalier's Blanc is a wine that is taut and restrained that opens up over a six to eight year period to reveal a wine of supreme delicacy.
Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte Pessac-Léognan Blanc
George Smith bought this historic Pessac-Léognan property back in 1720 where he added his name to the Château which has remained henceforth. The Rouge from this estate in 2009 hit stratospheric heights and many have waxed lyrical whether their Blanc had also done the same. It is a wine of immense power, concentration and pure texture. Ever evolving in the mouth to reveals multiple layers of intense grapefruit and lemon zest along with a waxy mouthfeel that is pure joy. Phenomenal.
