This is profound! 2008 Haut-Brion: The extraordinary 2008 Haut-Brion is a candidate for -wine of the vintage.- Composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 41% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc it reveals more evolution and complexity in its large-scaled perfume. The dense purple color is followed by a sweet nose of creosote asphalt blueberries black currants and jammy raspberries sweet tannins a savory fleshy mouthfeel and a stunning finish. This incredibly pure noble wine was produced from one of the estate-s smallest crops (only 7000 cases produced versus the usual 12000 cases). It should drink well for three decades or more.

Dark dusty hugely structured Haut-Brion is a complex serious wine with grandeur. The wine has considerable weight its tannins striated through the black plum and damson skin fruits. For long-term aging. R.V.

What a finish here. It starts off slowly and then builds. Full bodied but in reserve with a sweet tobacco berry and light dark chocolate character. Bright acidity and a chewy finish. So classy. Production was tiny in... What a finish here. It starts off slowly and then builds. Full bodied but in reserve with a sweet tobacco berry and light dark chocolate character. Bright acidity and a chewy finish. So classy. Production was tiny in 2008. Try after 2014.

41% Merlot; 50% Cabernet Sauvignon; 9% Cab FrancThe wine starts out with fresh wood and new oak.Flavors of bakers chocolate and coco powder.For a wine of such weight and depth it had a surprisingly short finish.
