Tasting Notes

Autumnal fruit, tobacco and spice, this is unmistakable on the nose and could only be Haut Brion. A dense, earthy and mineral mid-palate, a sturdy, sinuous structure and yet the sleekness and refinement that only comes from the very best. The tannins provide strongly support and the finish is sumptuous with the wine driving through with abundant energy. Drink 2020-2035+ (50CS:41M:9CF) - 18 points

Reviews & Scores

A very complex wine, with black licorice, sweet tobacco, blackberry and earth. Full-bodied and long, with big, juicy tannins and lots of bright fruit, mushroom, earth and decadent fruit flavors. The most powerful wine of the vintage. Only 35 percent of the total production (normally this is 50 percent or 55 percent). Shows the selection. - 93-96 points
