A compelling nose of roasted herbs scorched earth sweet blueberries plums black currants and a hint of graphite is followed by a deep layered sumptuously textured full-bodied Haut-Brion but one with extraordinary complexity. This wine seems more evolved and approachable than I had expected it to be at age 10. My window of maturity seven years ago was 2012-2040 but I would change that to 2010-2050.

Full red-ruby. Roasted plum currant tobacco and minerals on the nose. Compellingly dense and thick but almost miraculously lively and light on its feet. Has a texture like liquid velvet coating the entire palate... Full red-ruby. Roasted plum currant tobacco and minerals on the nose. Compellingly dense and thick but almost miraculously lively and light on its feet. Has a texture like liquid velvet coating the entire palate. Wonderfully unmanipulated wine with perfectly integrated acids giving it superb subtle vinosity and thrust. Finishes with outstanding building persistence with the substantial tannins perfectly supported by the wine's fat middle.

For an Haut-Brion this is huge. Every characteristic suggests power from the dark color through the knock-out perfumes full of dark brooding fruits. The flavors are black intense and ripe. It is a delicious wine... For an Haut-Brion this is huge. Every characteristic suggests power from the dark color through the knock-out perfumes full of dark brooding fruits. The flavors are black intense and ripe. It is a delicious wine surprisingly ready to drink. And yes just at the end there is a small hint of the delicacy and elegance that is true Haut-Brion. R.V.

Beautiful tobacco berry cedar and plum aromas in this one. Full-bodied yet very fine and reserved with silky tannins and a medium finish. I still prefer the 1998 but this is very very fine indeed. An Haut-Brion with lots... Beautiful tobacco berry cedar and plum aromas in this one. Full-bodied yet very fine and reserved with silky tannins and a medium finish. I still prefer the 1998 but this is very very fine indeed. An Haut-Brion with lots of finesse. Best after 2010. -JS
