"96+ points- Wine Advocate. The 2012 Haut-Brion Blanc has an entrancing bouquet of honeysuckle, fresh pear and greengage that is beautifully defined and seamlessly enmeshed with the oak. The palate is well balanced with just a patina of new oak, smooth and harmonious, fine mineralit? here with a spicy finish that leaves the tongue tingling. This is very well crafted and it will just get better and better."
