2012 Pessac-Leognan Blanc, Cru Classé from Bordeaux.

The nose and palate of this Pessac-Leognan Blanc are contrasted. The aromas released are a sign of a very fresh wine. Citrus fruit notes prevail and pink grapefruit hints take over the senses. A bold 2012 Haut-Brion white wine is expected. The attack is unctuous; the wine is full-bodied and very strong. The vibrancy, at first restrained, is felt again on the palate to stretch this Cru Classé de Graves on a good length. The 2012 Haut-Brion is a great vintage wine. 

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting. 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 mineralité here with a spicy finish that leaves the tongue tingling. This is very well crafted and it will just get better and better. Yes, my drinking window does advise ten years in bottle, since in my experience only this and the late Laville Haut-Brion age so magnificently. Therefore, that score may well rise in the future if I am ever afforded a chance to re-taste this superb white Bordeaux. Tasted January 2016.
