  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The 2022 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc contains much more Sémillon (72%) this year due to its quality according to Jean-Philippe Delmas. It has a perfumed bouquet with white peach, honeysuckle, red apple and light candle wax. Superb delineation. The palate is taut and linear, chalky in texture with good tension. It shows quite impressive weight, perhaps more than the Haut-Brion Blanc with a dab of ginger enlivening the finish. Superb. Drink 2030-2060

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    Perhaps it's because of the drought-affected vintage, or it could be due to the fantastic terroir of La Mission Haut-Brion, but in any case, the 2022 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is especially aromatically expressive, bursting with lively aromas of pear, linen, smoke, gunflint, lemon and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, crystalline and pure, it's tensile and seamless, with impressively vibrant acids and a saline finish.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is incredibly tightly wound, especially for the year and considering its heavy Semillon tilt in the blend. It will be interesting to see where this goes. There’s tremendous depth here and also a phenolic-like feel that is impossible to escape. My impression is that there is a lot of wine here, but it needs time to come together. Drink 2026-2037.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 97-98

    Lime-tinged bright straw colour, the 28% Sauvignon Blanc is evident in the aromas of freshly squeezed lemons, pink grapefruit and blood orange. There is a noticeable volume and flavours of white peach and pear as the nuances of Sémillon unfold. Deep and full, the rounded palate is perfectly judged thanks to the lift and lively freshness on the finish.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 96-97

    So much oyster shell here with a chalk, stone character, as well as dried lemons and sliced white peaches and pears. It’s medium to full body with lovely fruit and a flavorful finish. Bitter lemon as well. 72% semillon and 28% sauvignon blanc.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 96

    This is an extremely impressive white that has high levels of Sémillon in the blend this year, helped by old vines that resisted the heat well. Gorgeous construction and balance, with precision-cut citrus, bitter almond, slate, dill, white pepper spice, a juicy grip through the palate and noble bitterness bringing things to a close. Less 1st wine than last year - 20% less first wine with the same yield; 41% new oak barrels for ageing. Harvest August 17 to 23.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 95-97

    The 2022 Château La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc is mostly Sémillon (72%), and compared to its big brother, the Haut-Brion Blanc, it's more closed and inward, with classic Sémillon power and richness. Ripe melon, white flowers, honeyed minerality, and chalky notes all define the aromatics, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a great mid-palate and outstanding length. It's a downright mineral bomb on the finish and is a brilliant white in the making.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18+

    In contrast to the other top-flight wines in this vintage, La Mission possesses much lower, deeper base notes of flavour, making it a more contemplative soul. There are pith, apple skin and green florals breaking up the mass of mid-palate flavours, but they don’t have the necessary energy to flip this wine from being a main course candidate into being a more multi-skilled white wine. Thoughtful, classy, dense and calm, this is an intense white with a more structured feel throughout, and despite the profound resonance, it is all kept in check with stunning acidity. 18.5+ Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 70 Sauvignon Blanc, 30 Semillon There is a lot of volume here, and this is more of a main course style than a lighter, tangier wine. 27 The flavours are complex and involving and delivered calmly and deliberately. Please give it a few years to settle, as the finish is still feisty.


Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Owned by the Dillon family since 1983, La Mission Haut Brion is without doubt one of the mostexceptional wines of Bordeaux. Across the road from Haut Brion, it regularly competes with its moreillustrious older sibling and has even outperformed Haut Brion in certain vintages, such as 2006 when Wine Spectator suggests that it "could be the wine of the vintage".



Stretching from the rather unglamorous southern suburbs of Bordeaux, for 50 km along the left bank of the river Garonne, lies Graves. Named for its gravelly soil, a relic of Ice Age glaciers, this is the birthplace of claret, despatched from the Middle Ages onwards from the nearby quayside to England in vast quantities. It can feel as though Bordeaux is just about red wines, but some sensational white wines are produced in this area from a blend of sauvignon blanc, Semillon and, occasionally, muscadelle grapes, often fermented and aged in barrel. In particular, Domaine de Chevalier is renowned for its superbly complex whites, which continue to develop in bottle over decades. A premium appellation, Pessac-Leognan, was created in 1987 for the most prestigious terroirs within Graves. These are soils with exceptional drainage, made up of gravel terraces built up in layers over many millennia, and consequently thrive in mediocre vintages but are less likely to perform well in hotter years. These wines were appraised and graded in their own classification system in 1953 and updated in 1959, but, like the 1855 classification system, this should be regarded with caution and the wines must absolutely be assessed on their own current merits.
