Chateau Haut-Brion Blanc 2023

Winter was characterized by rainy and relatively cold weather. When the vines began to bud in mid-March, they experienced rapid growth due to regular rainfall and warm days. This quick growth required vigilant monitoring by our vineyard teams to ensure vine health. Thanks to the dedication of our winegrowers and the advantageous location of the vineyard, which provides good ventilation and minimal leaf moisture, mildew development was effectively prevented despite the pressure. Flowering occurred under excellent conditions, promising a generous harvest. This year saw increased green harvesting efforts, including extensive thinning and leaf removal on the east-facing side of the vineyard, covering over half of the vineyard area. Trimming was limited to preserve soil coolness and grape shade. 2023 was a technical year in vineyard management, demanding precision and responsiveness from our teams. The strength of this nearly “blessed” terroir was once again evident in a generous, healthy, and high-quality harvest.

The white grape harvest began on August 21 under intense heat. The grapes were in good health, and harvesting times were adjusted to ensure picking occurred only during the coolest parts of the day. Grapes were transported in refrigerated vehicles, and harvesting proceeded at a steady pace to maintain the white grapes’ aromatic profile. The results were particularly satisfying, with preserved acidity and reasonable alcohol levels, indicating the production of pure, fine, and fresh wines.

The wine exhibits a pale yellow color with green highlights. The initial nose is intense and complex, offering fruity (peach, citrus, lime) and floral (light lilac, jasmine) notes. The palate is rich and dense with a sappy, expansive quality, culminating in a long and deep finish. It is unquestionably a superb white Haut-Brion.
