Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. This Laville Haut-Brion never performs well in blind tastings, simply because it needs so much oxygenation to wake up.

This Laville Haut-Brion never performs well in blind tastings, simply because it needs so much oxygenation to wake up. I was initially mean with my score but once I knew its identity, I left a glass to one side to see what happened. It is very closed on the nose with light aromas of yellow flower, almond and yellow plum, yet after a few minutes it starts to unfurl…if only I had another couple of hours! The palate is well balanced with a touch of spice on the entry, good vigour with subtle almond and hazelnut notes on the poised, tightly coiled finish. My mark is based on projected quality at 15-20 years of age.

Wine Spectator, March 2010
Rich, powerful, perfumed aromas of lemon pie, cooked apple and melon lead to a full body, with a fabulous density that persists. Gorgeous, with lovely richness and balance. Best after 2011. –JS

A ripe wine, with a delicious citrus and pear character, sweet fruits and an edge of spice. Pineapple acidity gives both richness and freshness. The wine has both balance and final acidity.

Extremely reticent nose hints at lemon and lanolin with air. Densely packed yet weightless, with terrific cut and an oyster shell minerality contributing to an extremely dry impression. Very penetrating, minerally wine in need of extended bottle aging. I wouldn't go anywhere near this now.
