It seems to be cut from the same mold as years such as 1979 and 1985. There is a hint of graphite in the abundant fruit. The wine is medium to full-bodied nuanced subtle deep and provocatively elegant. It is made in a style that only Haut Brion appears capable of achieving. The finish is extremely long the tannins sweet and the overall impression one of delicacy interwoven with power and ripeness. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.

The Chateau Haut-Brion 1999 is an off-vintage that should not be overlooked. At now 14 years of age it has developed a sensual bouquet with black truffle infusing the blackberry and cedar fruit, having softened since I last tasted it back in June 2009. The palate is rounded and sweet on the entry with those svelte, satin-like tannins in place. It is much more open and generous than I was expecting with hints of liquorices towards the finish that displays moderate length. Drink now-2023.

Delivers cooked berries with light cream aromas that turn to tobacco and cedar. Full-bodied featuring big yet well-integrated tannins and a chewy finish. Needs time still to mellow. Serious.-'89/'99 Bordeaux blind... Delivers cooked berries with light cream aromas that turn to tobacco and cedar. Full-bodied featuring big yet well-integrated tannins and a chewy finish.

Ruby-red. Knockout nose combines black raspberry plum syrup hot stones Cuban tobacco and sexy oak tones. Large-scaled lush and seamless; pure silk in the mouth. More layered and longer than La Mission '99. Finishes with... Ruby-red. Knockout nose combines black raspberry plum syrup hot stones Cuban tobacco and sexy oak tones. Large-scaled lush and seamless; pure silk in the mouth. More layered and longer than La Mission '99. Finishes with broad lush tannins and excellent persistence.
