Château La Tour-Haut-Brion is made in a precise, clean, crafted winemaking style. Its supple, medium-bodied, slightly herbaceous wines are drinkable at a relatively early age despite their high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. They have the characteristic nose of coffee, tobacco, occasionally grilled herbs, and black and red currants. Moderate tannins and good underlying acidity give the wine fine definition for at least 5-15 years following most vintages.
