The nose is simply breathtaking - quintessential Haut-Brion with ebullient red berry fruit, roasted herbs, gravel, terracotta tiles on a warm summer's day...it is simply wave after wave of intoxicating scents that could bring even the most stoic person to tears of joy. The palate displays heavenly balance, pitch-perfect acidity, perhaps spicier than previous bottles that I have tasted, and what depth and dimension in this outstanding wine. That hint of graphite on the finish is a cheeky nod to Pauillac, as if to thumb its nose at the First Growths, because alongside Château Latour, almost by stealth, the Haut-Brion is one of the greatest Bordeaux in this millennial year. Tasted November 2014. - Neal Martin

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
