Wine.comOne recognizes the familiar burnt fragrance along with traces of barrel wood, whiffs of damp earth and odors of ripe berries combining with the rich unctuosity of ripened banana. In the mouth the volume is impressive with its grainy tannins sometimes showing silky and soft and then again as ever-present and firm. The presence of these classic tannins obviate its enormous capacity to develop into a great vintage. Already a delicious wine the characteristic Haut-Brion trait showing tannins simultaneously soft and firm assure its lengthy, lingering, satisfying taste as it caresses the palate.
