Château Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan 1er Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

(1993 Vintage) Our fulfillment and satisfaction are great considering this vintage. The colour is deep and constant. The nose is typical of Haut-Brion with the intense ripe aroma of red berries. The tannins are rich and soft. The wine is complex and perfectly balanced. It's without an extremely good Haut-Brion.

    WA95 NM Drink 2012-2034 Medium to deep garnet colour. The nose is still a little mute giving a moderate intensity of youthful aromas: ripe plums, cassis, Chinese five spice, moss and a fair amount of cedar. Oak tannins seem to dominate the structure contributing to the taut astringency of the palate yet there is a good amount of ripe berry and earthy fruit plus medium acidity to balance. Long earthy finish. Drink 2012 to 2034. Tasted February 2009.
