jamessuckling.com, 93 points: The acidity in this really gives verve and intensity to the wine. Lemon and salt character already. Full yet vivid. Exciting. Great value. Drink or hold.
jamessuckling.com, 97 points: (JS96-97 points) A layered and deep white with beautiful fruit giving mango, sliced-lemon and green-pineapple character. Full-bodied and so flavorful. Love the phenolic balance. One of the best dry whites of the vintage.
Wine Enthusiast, 97 points: (WE95-97 points) Rich and smooth, this is an impressively structured and concentrated wine. It has pleasant freshness and a crisp lemon flavor, but that is just a small part of this intensely ripe wine. It should last...
Wine Enthusiast, 97 points: (WE95-97 points) This opulent, rich and generous wine has a fatness to it, which is happily contrasted by lemon acidity from the high proportion of Sauvignon Blanc in the blend. It is ripe and densely fruity, as well as...
jamessuckling.com, 99 points: (JS98-99 points) This is dense like a Montrachet yet so minerally with crushed-stone undertones. Full-bodied, layered and powerful. A great glass of white wine. First time they used a majority of sauvignon blanc.
Wine Enthusiast, 96 points: (WE94-96 points) This wine is intense and concentrated, ripe in generous tropical and citrus fruits. There is plenty of lemon as well as grapefruit in the tight, mineral texture. It is likely to age well, and should be...
jamessuckling.com, 98 points: (JS97-98 points) This is really exciting with a vivid and energetic acidity and brightness. Lemon rind, pear and mineral character. Full-bodied, tight and long. A winner. Great finish.
Wine Enthusiast, 95 points: (WE93-95 points) This is a beautiful wine, ripe in swathes of rich apple and peach that is cut by bright, lemony acidity. It is exuberant, putting its fruit on a pedestal, and should age well. Hold until 2020.
jamessuckling.com, 97 points: (JS96-97 points) A dense and powerful white with wonderful depth and phenolic tension. Shows very pretty sliced-apple, lemon and pear character. Excellent finish. 90% sauvignon blanc with the rest semillon and sauvignon...
jamessuckling.com, 95 points: This is really excellent with sliced apples, lemon rind, minerals and stones. Medium to full body, vivid and energetic acidity and a long and powerful, almost minerally finish. Wow.
Vinous, 91 points: (88-91) The 2016 La Clarté de Haut-Brion feels quite rich and intense owing to the high percentage of Sémillon (76 percent) in the blend this year. A phenolic, broad white, the 2016 has plenty of personality, although it...
