Description

100 / 100

"A blend of 50% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Haut-Brion is reticent to begin, languidly revealing crushed black cherries, ripe black plums and wild blueberries with sparks of cinnamon stick, cloves, nutmeg, espresso, unsmoked cigars, tapenade, crushed rocks and lavender. The full-bodied palate possesses wonderfully complementary contrasts of bold black and blue fruit richness and delicately nuanced cherry fruit, baking spices and floral accents, strutting ripe, finely pixelated tannins and seamless acidity that is placed firmly in the background, finishing very long and with plenty of attitude. This impeccably poised, exquisitely perfumed 2015 Haut-Brion possesses the most alluring yet seemingly effortless beauty. While it bears only a passing resemblance in its opulent personality to the now legendary 1989, like that vintage the 2015 cannot fail to hedonically satiate and intellectually edify all lovers of great Bordeaux who drink it. What's more, it also has the blue-blooded tenaciousness to remain this jaw-droppingly impressive, throughout its many guises over time, and for a very, very long time."

Château Haut-Brion is the only property outside the Médoc to be included in the 1855 classification. Although its character differs from its Médoc cousins, the potential of its gravelly terroir has nothing to envy them. Producing wines that are said to be leaner than the other firsts, the style of Château Haut-Brion is definitely more digestible and silky, especially in its youth. Endowed with very ripe tannins and a great aromatic finesse, this immense Pessac exhibits at maturity notes that extend from game to undergrowth, through spices, a resolutely seductive bouquet.
