Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
96

Bordeaux Book, 4th Edition January, 2003 A prodigious example, the 1998 tastes like liquid minerals intermixed with honeyed grapefruit, lanolin, citrus, smoke, and passion fruit. Full-bodied, with good acidity, plenty of structure, and a tremendously long finish, it remains youthful and tight, but the upside is awesome. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2035. Last tasted, 1/03. Drink 2008-2035
-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7

The 1998 Haut-Brion-Blanc (96-100) is a sensationally powerful wine with the texture of a grand cru Burgundy and the complexity afforded by the Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend.
