Haut Brion tasting in Rochester, NY with J. P. Delmas. Typical Haut Brion, not flamboyant, but a well balanced wine, medium to full bodied, and very approachable now but will easily cellar.

Clear, deep ruby. Only very slight fading at the rim. Clean, medium to pronounced nose of sweet roses, some red and black cherries, plum, nutmeg, cloves. Hints of capsicum, cigar box. Very complex. Developing. Dry, high acidity, medium+ tannins (very silky and smooth). More cherries and plum on the palate. Medium alcohol. Medium+ body. Long polished and sweet finish with some mandarin peel notes at the very end. Outstanding. Premium priced. Wait for at least another 5-8 years. Bravo.

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.
