    This is a very thoughtfully made white, 90% aged in cuve and the balance in two new barrels. Sulphur, which can often be the bane of Pessac whites, is kept to a minimum. A very pale gold colour, it has peach flesh on the nose, citrus fruits on the palate, and is very harmonious with a subtle stamp from the complex terroir, which leaves stony, saline notes on the finish. At its best after 5 years from vintage per François Boutemy. Very limited quantity. For drinking now to 2022.

    Château Haut-Lagrange

    55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot (13% alc.)

    This is made from 2.7h of superbly sited vines just below Haut-Bailly, where the top soil is  gravelly with limestone-clay beneath, and a 5.75h parcel next to Rochemorin where there is also deep gravels but a touch more clay. The vines are planted on very good rootstock and yields are lower than average for the appellation. Aged 50% in cuve and 50% in new barrels for 18 months, there is a quality to the fruit that only the best terroirs give, it is very harmonious again, nothing is out of place or exaggerated. The black fruits, blackcurrants and ripe plums have a touch of pepper, and an extra level of depth and complexity over the more solar 2009, all the time relieved by a perfect acidity. For drinking now to 2021.
