2000 Château Haut-Brion Blanc
|Varietal:||Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend|
International Wine CellarRating: 91(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 102, May/June 2002 Lovely green-tinged color. Cool, bright aromas of lime, pineapple, mint and minerals. Rich, chewy and full, with lovely flesh and texture. Wonderfully ripe but currently a bit unforthcoming in the middle palate. Finishes very long and ripe, with a honeyed flavor. Higher in alcohol than the 2001, at 14%, but doesn't have the younger wine's sheer grip and flavor extension.
