- 1.5 kg
The Woltner family, for its part, will own La Mission from 1919. It will leave a legacy of a new type of vat allowing better control of fermentation. In 1983, the Dillon family, owners of the adjoining Château Haut-Brion, acquired the vineyard. Prince Robert of Luxembourg, grandson of Douglas Dillon, became President of the estate in 2008. The management of the vineyard is, even today, ensured by Jean-Philippe Delmas.
Tasting Notes :
Conditions were a little challenging for the Sémillon this year, and the blend of the La Mission Haut-Brion 2016 Blanc is, unusually, dominated by Sauvignon Blanc (62.7%) with 37.3% Sémillon. It reveals subtle notions of mandarin peel, fresh grapefruit and pineapple with touches of crushed rocks, white peaches and coriander seed. Medium-bodied, the palate has a racy line of freshness cutting through the vibrant citrus and tropical layers, finishing on a lingering mineral note. Considering the challenges, this is a very impressive result!
