Wine Description

(2002 Vintage) "Whether its is a coincidence or because in relatively cool years the 1st growth terroirs are brilliant. Haut-Brion has turned out a beautifully classic, medium-bodied, precise and focused 2002 boasting a deep ruby/purple colour as well as strikingly elegant aromatics (crsuhed stones, plums, black cherries, currants, figs and earth). The wine possesses impresssively measured power and elegance offered in a medium-bodied, nicely-structured, exceptionally pure format. It is unusual for Haut Brion to dominate La Misssion at such a young age, but it certainly does in the 2002 vintage. read more...Antcipated maturity: 2010-2024." 92-94/100 pts.
