Tasting Notes

A more firmly structured Haut-Brion built somewhere along the lines of the 1996,this dark garnet-coloured wine is showing notes of licorice, underbrush, compost, truffles, dried herbs, creosote, and sweet black cherries and currants. Medium bodied, rich but still structured, this wine unfolds incrementally on the palate, showing superb density and a lot of complex Graves elements. It is just beginning to hit its plateau of full maturity. Anticipated maturity:now-2025
