From the opening, the nose is very aromatic, mixing notes of white flowers, honey, all supported by a toasted tip. The palate is expressive and complex with a pleasing roundness; the finish is long with notes of vanilla baked apples.
Château Haut Selve is the only creation of vineyard in Bordeaux in the 20th Century. The vineyard was planted in the historical Graves Appellation area over a pine forest where vines used to grow 120 years ago. Each step of Chateau Haut Selve’s creation was thought and carried out as if it was a piece of art. The history of art and wine is the particularity of this property that is known to be one of the top five in Graves.
"This is expressively aromatic with perfumed florals, but also clean with orchard fruit, fresh pineapple plus some herbs. Offering fresh purity from the sauvignon blanc and body from the semillon, this is complex but has a well-rounded structure. It’s nicely balanced by guava fruit and pears, citrus zest acidity, and just six months in oak giving a mild vanilla spicy finish." 92 points, Cathal McBride, Sunday Business Post, April 2023
