Château Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan 1er Grand Cru Classé
International Wine CellarFull, bright ruby-red. Spicy, fresh aroma of black raspberry, with a hint of smoked meat. Dense and fine-grained, with enticing, nicely delineated flavors of black raspberry, minerals and sweet tobacco. Distinctly dark fruit in character, with lively framing acidity. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent. As always, this will be one of Bordeaux's best second wines.
