Château Haut Brion, 1er Cru Classé, Pessac Léognan, 2022

Tasting Note:

More reserved than La Mission Haut Brion, this really requires some coaxing. Some floral hints emerge, followed by suggestions of cigar wrappers, pencil shavings and incense. The palate is immense. This is one of the most profound and concentrated Haut Brions we can recall. Its core is tightly bound, dark and brooding, but the balance is there underpinned by a rich framework of deeply mineral tannins. It's hugely impressive with lots of intrigue and huge potential, a real vin de garde built to last five decades or more. Finishes with highly attractive notes of cassis and crushed stones. A magical wine that will need considerable time to be anywhere near its best. 53.6% Merlot, 35.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc.
