Wine Advocate

96 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The La Mission Haut-Brion 2018 Blanc is a blend of 57.4% Sauvignon Blanc and 42.6% Sémillon. It sashays out of the glass with gregarious notes of white peaches, fresh pears and pineapple with nuances of lime blossoms, crushed rocks and sea spray, plus a waft of beeswax. The racy, medium to full-bodied palate is charged with energy, delivering vibrant citrus and tropical fruit layers with a satiny texture and fantastic length. Completely exceeding my barrel tasting expectations, this promises to be an earlier drinking style, albeit multilayered, dripping with class and, yes, it's downright sexy. Give it just a few more months in bottle and then it should offer decadent drinking for the next 15+ years." 03/21

Neil Martin

96 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "Tasted side by side, the 2018 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is unequivocally a few steps ahead of the 2018 Haut-Brion Blanc. I made sure to decant my bottle for three hours before penning a single note, as it always demands aeration. Slightly deeper in color, which is nothing unusual, it has a more complex bouquet of yellow fruit, peach skin, almond shavings, hazelnut and light lanolin notes, all beautifully defined. The palate is extremely well balanced with a tangy, marmalade-tinged entry, dried honey and a slight pepperiness toward the finish. Very cohesive and focused, this is a marvelous, quite cerebral La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc. Superb." 03/21

90-92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is rich, ample and expressive, with tons of Sauvignon Blanc character and the added textural richness of the vintage. Orchard fruit, white flowers, mint and white peach all meld together in a pretty, understated wine. The 2018 offers lovely aromatic brightness as well as a sense of translucence that is quite appealing. The Blanc is 57.4% Sauvignon and 42.6% Sémillon." 04/19
