1er Grand Cru Classé

2016 Chateau Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan, France

Château Haut-Brion Rouge
Elegant and complex, Château Haut-Brion red presents mineral aromas and a unique complexity. Its strength lays in the finish, which is surprisingly long. This aromatic persistence is due to its very noble origins.

TASTING NOTES
Bright red with garnet-red and purple highlights.
The nose is very expressive and complex: a combination of red and
black fruit, violets, etc., plus a remarkable impression of freshness!
The wine starts out full-bodied and juicy on the palate,
then develops with incredible refinement, showing rich
tannin and plenty of volume, but no aggressiveness.
The wine is broad-based and thick, but not heavy.
Not a hair out of place, nothing to excess.
And what a flavor!!! This Haut-Brion is
undoubtedly one of the château’s greatest successes.

The weather
Despite a winter and a spring marked by complicated climatic conditions – abundant rain and temperatures below seasonal averages – flowering took place with an almost miraculous homogeneity. The great drought of the summer ended with a rainy season in mid-September that was very beneficial for the end of the maturity cycle. In October, no rain came to disrupt our harvest. The freshness of the nights, combined with the warm days, allowed to development of wines rich in color but also fresh and fruity. Paradox or miracle of nature? We would rather think it is the combination of human effort and, in particular, once again, the exceptional terroir.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2016 Haut-Brion is blended of 56% Merlot, 37.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6.5% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the nose is at once profound and arresting, offering drop-dead gorgeous Morello cherries, lilacs and red rose scents with a core of Black Forest cake, warm blackcurrants, and blueberry preserves plus wafts of sandalwood, and underbrush. Medium-bodied, the elegantly crafted palate is completely packed with intense floral, mineral, and cassis-laced flavors with a firm frame of very finely pixelated tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and achingly stunning. Reviewed by: Lisa Perrotti-Brown., Issue date: November 2018. Drinking window: 2025 - 2070.
