Still youthful dark ruby color. Initially closed nose, opening up in the glass to a lovely classy bouquet of casis, black fruit, spice, tobacco & leather. A big wine, backward, needs lots of time; yet very very concentrated - atypically so for Haut Brion - w/silky well-integrated tannins; brooding; very long, complex finish. A great Bordeaux still early in its maturity and will continue to develop.

This powerful, complex perfume grabs you with smoke, tar, tobacco, cassis, Cuban cigar, leather, spice and cherry pipe tobacco aromatics. This is rich, dense and full bodied, yet light on its feet and perfectly in balance. The wine feels graceful in your mouth. The finish is long, clean, pure, seamless and silky. Still young this will only continue getting better over the next several decades

Jon brought this over to the table joking it was a rebottled Lafite. The group consensus was an 85 HB. When he told us later it was the legendary 89, no one was sure whether he was joking or not. It was nice but did not bowl me over as I would expect if it was the 89. 93

Had this once before and was slightly disappointed. However, tonight I understood why this wine is so coveted. Dark crimson, powerful. A little reticent on the nose at first but an hour in glass and it began to open. The structure is remarkable with complex flavours throughout. The impression is that this wine has another 50 years ahead and it may even be too early to drink now. Not as fruit forward as the 1990 Conseillante on the same night but more complex and intriguing. Will keep accumulating through the years.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
