“Almost Nobody Owns One”: Château Haut-Brion Blanc 201912/06/2020
Bordeaux’s majestic white wines often get left behind in the rush to snap up its cult reds during the region’s fast-paced annual En Primeur campaign. For those in the know, several top chateaux produce stunning dry white wines which marry the freshness and aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc with rich texture and succulent peach notes from the Semillon grape.
One of the rarest of all Bordeaux wines is the Château Haut-Brion Blanc which was first produced back in 1916. Haut-Brion is the only First Growth estate in the appellation of Pessac-Léognan, a sub-region which boasts Bordeaux’s very finest terroir for producing white wines. Breathtaking quality and tiny production quantities of just a few hundred cases per year make Château Haut-Brion Blanc one of the most sought-after white wines on the planet.
“There are wines and there are Wines, just as there are yachts and then there are Yachts. Most of us are delighted to sail in any form be it a skiff, a sloop or cool ketch. If you’re serious then it’s in deep water with supermaxis. This is the rarified world of 90+ foot racing yachts, the sleekest and fastest sailing vessels on water. The greatest supermaxi of them all is Haut Brion Blanc.
It’s sleek, glossy white hull and shimmering mast is cast from pure Semillon, the straining bow that braces a massive golden spinnaker of Sauvignon Blanc, woven with grapefruit and lemon and stitched with silk. Not only the fastest, the most graceful, the most finely tuned racing vessel on the water: Supermaxis cost a fortune and are exquisitely rare. Almost nobody owns one. Buy Haut-Brion Blanc and revel in the knowledge that nobody else owns this too. And enjoy the greatest sailing experience of your life.” Justin Knock Master of Wine & Oeno Chief Wine Analyst
