All in elegance and length. I like it better than the 2000. Best after 2009.

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a very elegant bouquet with blackberry, briary, potter’s kiln and bacon fat with fine delineation and lift.

This has a very elegant bouquet with blackberry, briary, potter’s kiln and bacon fat with fine delineation and lift. The palate is medium-bodied with great freshness on the entry, very good acidity with red-berried fruit interlaced with cedar, graphite and leather. Very good depth, very feminine and focused with ample freshness on the finish that seems to have “filled out” in recent years. Excellent.

Haut-Brion's 2001 which was bottled late (the end of September 2003) possesses an unmistakable nobility as well as a burgeoning complexity. Plum/purple to the rim this blend of 52% Merlot 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc is playing it close to the vest having closed down considerably after bottling. Nevertheless it reveals pure notes of sweet and sour cherries black currants licorice smoke and crushed stones. Medium-bodied with excellent purity firm tannin and an angular structured finish it requires 5-7 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2020+.

Brooding aromas of raspberry nuts menthol and game. Dense rich chewy and deep but a bit youthfully closed showing less personality today than the 2001 La Mission. Larger but not longer. Finishes with building tannins and a minty nuance. 92+
