Reviews for 2009 Carmes Haut Brion, Les Bordeaux Blend

JS 93
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Round and friendly with soft and velvety tannins and delicious plum spice and meaty aromas and flavors. Juicy finish. Subtle and rich. Better in 2016.

Still youthfully tight this shows a packed core of plum cassis and blackberry fruit wrapped with bittersweet cocoa tobacco and charcoal notes. Nice drive marks the finish with gorgeous polish as a mouthwatering linzer... Still youthfully tight this shows a packed core of plum cassis and blackberry fruit wrapped with bittersweet cocoa tobacco and charcoal notes. Nice drive marks the finish with gorgeous polish as a mouthwatering linzer torte note expands as it opens in the glass. Drink now through 2020. -JM

Beautiful Burgundian-like aromas of burning embers roasted Provencal herbs black currants and sweet cherries and raspberries emerge from this medium-bodied elegant 2009 Pessac-Leognan.

Beautiful Burgundian-like aromas of burning embers roasted Provencal herbs black currants and sweet cherries and raspberries emerge from this medium-bodied elegant 2009 Pessac-Leognan. Medium to full-bodied and seductive with sweet tannins as well as a surprisingly evolved precocious personality (even for a 2009) it will offer delicious drinking over the next 15+ years. This is another wine in which I noticed subtle bottle variation.

Perfumed aromas of black raspberry licorice wild herbs and minerals. Sweet lush and densely packed with concentrated black cherry and black raspberry flavors offering considerable early appeal. Finishes with rising fruit and big ripe tannins. This is superb already but should evolve positively for 10 to 12 years.
