Lot #160. Haut-Brion Blanc 1998

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 NM.
"Tasted blind, the 1998 Haut-Brion Blanc served as a pertinent reminder of how this wine needs bottle age. Here it has a captivating bouquet of lemon curd, custard cremes, lemon thyme and minerals that just explode from the glass, later offering Japanese yellow plum and sherbet scents. The palate is creamy-textured with perfect acidity and fine tension. This is very harmonious and assured, sporting great depth on the marzipan-tinged finish that is long and sensual, and yet it is clear that this Haut-Brion Blanc will age with style and panache. Tasted April 2015." Wine Advocate #225, Jun 2016
Notes: 2cm, Nicked, scuffed label.
