    An elegant and refined red wine from Pessac-Léognan

    Château Haut-Brion is a 1st Classified Growth of 1855 red wine produced in the appellation of Pessac-Léognan. The total area of production is 48.35 hectares, and the vineyard’s grape varieties are 45,4% Merlot, 43,9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9,7% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

    At the tasting, the nose of the Château Haut-Brion 2004, rather discreetly, releases fragrances of red fruits, minerals, wood and smoke. The palate reveals a beautiful complexity, with great concentration and tannins that do not attack the palate. It has a good length and precision. An elegant and refined wine from one of the best vintages.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    It has been a few years since I last tasted the 2004 Haut-Brion. Now at 12 years of age, it retains its deep color. The bouquet is pleasant if not as complex as the 2004 Latour, yet it's possibly just biding its time as it gradually opens with black fruit, black olive, even a touch of mint that might dupe you into thinking Pauillac. The palate is medium-bodied and very harmonious, almost caressing thanks to the Merlot lending that velvety texture. The second half changes tack, the Cabernet nudging the Merlot off the stage and delivering a more structured, possibly foursquare finish that is linear and correct. It is an excellent wine for the vintage although it will always be overshadowed by the 2005 inter alia. Maybe more personality just needs to develop? Tasted September 2016.
