(From 2010 Vintage) 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,
Our fulfillment and satisfaction are great considering this vintage. The colour is deep and constant. The nose is typical of Haut-Brion with the intense ripe aroma of red berries. The tannins are rich and soft. The wine is complex and perfectly balanced. It's without an extremely good Haut-Brion.
