Typically Haut Brion has a complex bouquet of ripe fruit, tobacco and mineral, earthy scents. Rich, ripe, medium to full-bodied and well structured. A wine that seems to balance power and elegance, richness and harmony perfectly.
International Wine CellarGood deep red. Expressive aromas of raspberry, burning tobacco, minerals and truffle. Comparatively primary for the vintage, with good sweetness, richness and depth. Finishes dry but rich, with notes of smoke, game and tobacco. I find more fat and depth of flavor here than I did a year ago. Pomerol
