92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2008
($60; 66% semillon, 32% sauvignon blanc and 2% muscadelle) Pale, bright yellow. Highly complex aromas of lemon, honey, herbs, white flowers and nuts, plus a suggestion of lanolin. Dense and lush but bright; thick yet light on its feet, with complex flavors of grapefruit peel, citrus blossom, spices and herbs. Impressively seamless wine with excellent energy. The sauvignon and semillon come mostly from 26-year-old dry-farmed vines in Dry Creek Valley, while the muscadelle is from Napa Valley vines more than 50 years of age. Morlet told me the blend is roughly "an average of the blends of Haut-Brion Blanc and Laville Haut-Brion."
