Reviews of purchase Chateau Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Leognan AOC 1-er Grand Cru Classe, 2009
Noble wine of straw yellow color.
A full-bodied wine has a dense volumetric taste with a completely luxurious and refined structure strong sour cream. Incredibly long aftertaste filled with notes of quince and marmalade.
In the wonderful aroma of wine harmoniously woven shades of peach and lemon, jasmine and butter, walnut and flint, and almond shortbread, decorated with shades of orange peel.
The wine goes well with fish dishes, lobster, crab meat, baked pork.
Wine Chateau Haut-Brion Blanc Robert Parker called the Rolls-Royce in the world of white wine, and it really deserves this title. Created from approximately equal parts of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, this elegant wine embodies the characteristic of the 19th century point of view, when dry wines had to have a light sweetness and fragrant aromas of sweet wines. Château Haut-Brion has excellent balance, in which the acidity perfectly balanced with the sweetness of fruit colors and softness Semillon complemented by fresh notes of Sauvignon Blanc.
