Issue Issue 78

Very good deep red-ruby. Sweet, highly expressive aromas of redcurrant, hot stones, roasted plum, woodsmoke and tobacco. Fuller and more textured in the middle palate, with a chewy, tactile mouth feel that suggests strong extract and a wonderfully pliant texture. A firm mineral underpinning and sound acids frame the fruit. Expansive and seductively sweet in the mouth. Finishes very long and ripe, with thoroughly civilized tannins.

48% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very firm and dense and voluptuous on the nose. Sleek and slimline and elegant. All tannins shed. Lovely density of fruit and the fruit dominates – the tannins are definitely in retreat but they are there. Very polished but still quite youthful. Firm!

This wine has been brilliant on every occasion I have tasted it. More accessible and forward than the 1996, it possesses a saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a beautiful, knock-out set of aromatics, consisting of black fruits, vanillin, spice, and wood-fire smoke. Multidimensional and rich, with layers of ripe fruit, and beautifully integrated tannin and acidity, this medium to full-bodied wine is a graceful, seamless, exceptional Haut-Brion that should drink surprisingly well young.

A splendid Haut-Brion with wonderful elegance. Refined tannins. Dark-colored, with beautiful ripe berry, cherry and very smoky nuances. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, plush texture on the finish.

Recommend decanting for a few hours before consumption. Concentrated, well balanced, with typical flavor profile for Haut Brion.

This was the wine I took to celebrate my 40 years anniversary. The wine was fantastic. Very complex beginning with a never-ending retro-taste. Some of cherries mixed with leather, an exquisite experience and a great a choice.

This is drinking very well now. Fairly elegant for a Haut-Brion. Tannins are round and soft and nicely integrated. Core of raspberry, black cherry, and dark berry. Accented by subtle notes of leather, cigar box, and spices. Pleasing elegant finish that lingers on the palate.

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.
