This utterly mind-blowing effort from Laville-Haut-Brion, with its decadent bouquet of honeyed, super ripe melons, figs, and toasty new oak is a real turn on. In the mouth, the wine is stunningly rich, concentrated, and intense, with a texture more akin to a Grand Cru white Burgundy than an austere white Graves. Acidity is low and the alcohol level is high, suggesting this wine will have to be drunk in its first 10-15 years. For pure power, as well as a sumptuous texture, this may well be the most dramatic Laville-Haut-Brion ever produced. Production was tiny; only 900 cases were made. Anticipated maturity: Now-2020. Last tasted, 4/91. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, September 1993
Smooth, round and spicy, almost glowing with bright grapefruit, apple, tobacco and honey aromas and flavors. Finishes firm and lengthy; focused and intense enough to warrant cellaring until 1998 to 2000.
