Full-bodied with supersilky tannins and a beautiful licorice tar and fruit aftertaste. Long and complex. Will improve with age but delicious now.-'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008).

A more firmly structured Haut-Brion built somewhat along the lines of the 1996 this dark garnet-colored 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. Last tasted 11/02.
