Château Haut Nadeau Blanc 2009

Member Review by Damien Hunter:

Well built little blanc. Over delivers for the price. Well balanced between ripe fruit & acidic backbone, nice creamy texture. Shows elegance, most NZ SB or US offerings at the price are simple minded, this is balanced.

A nice, refreshing wine. Acidity is slightly lacking for my own preferences (Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs being my white of choice), but is certainly in balance with the rest of the wine. Nose is somewhat herbaceous; flavor consists of green apples and pear.

the nose is nice. the midpalate shows a dominant dark berry and possibly tabacco flavor. this one might be too young yet. either that or it may need to decant for quite a while

I may have popped this too early. I found it hot and high in acidity. On day 2, it was noticeably softer. On day 3, it crumbled. This bottle has been touted as a wine of good QPR by Robert Parker, Gary Vaynerchuk, and cellartracker. Would like a chance to try this in a couple more years.

Earthy, lots of minerals...fruit slow to evolve but does come through. Wholesome and tannic. Well priced.

Nice inviting dark ruby color, with medium legs. Nose has cherry, tobacco, pencil shavings, and hint of red carnation; slight earthiness. Ripe cherry and blue fruit on the palate. Nice balance of mid palate tannins and acid. Long pleasant finish with a slight tart-cherry note. Great value and really easy-drinking once decanted for 1/2 hour or more. I like.

    One of many great reds from Bordeaux that we've just been waiting to try. This is based on Cabernet and therefore shows lots of cassis and spice on the palate. Just delicious today!
