Tasting Notes

Jean Philippe Delmas has produced a massive wine in 2010 (23% Merlot, 57% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc). Dense, dark purple with a brooding nose of dark berry fruit and cassis. Massively full-bodied with tremendous waves of blackcurrant rolling over the palate with a touch of meaty character but there is still so much being held back. Huge length and firm tannins - this is a wine for the long term but the wait will certainly be rewarded! Drink 2025 - 2050

Reviews & Scores

2010 Haut-Brion: Following a harvest that finished on October 10, Haut-Brion produced a 2010 that should turn out to be one of its all-time greats ... an amazing feat given what they have accomplished over recent vintages. A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc that came in at 14.6% alcohol, the 2010 boasts an opaque purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of scorched earth/burning embers, blueberries, black currant liqueur and crushed rocks. Full and opulent with nobility, finesse, purity and elegance, this amazing effort possesses extraordinary levels of extract as well as formidable, but sweet, well-integrated tannins. It requires 8-10 years of cellaring and should drink well for 50+ years.
