Chateau Haut-Brion 1-Er Grand Cru Classe 2010
" ...boasts an opaque purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of scorched earth/burning embers, blueberries, black currant liqueur and crushed rocks. Full and opulent with nobility, finesse, purity and elegance, this amazing effort possesses extraordinary levels of extract as well as formidable, but sweet, well-integrated tannins...98-100" WA 5/11 "Good full ruby-red. Complex, expressive, very showy aromas and flavors of cassis, menthol, smoke and tobacco complemented by violet, milk chocolate and sweet spices. Fat, sweet and concentrated in the mouth, with an almost liqueur-like ripeness to its highly concentrated, palate-saturating flavors. Finishes ripe and savory, with huge but plush tannins and lingering notes of blueberry and minerals. ..98+" IWC 7/13 "Sappy, tongue-coating pastis, blackberry coulis and loganberry fruit starts this huge wine off, followed by a parade of licorice snap, violet, tar, black tea, roasted alder, wood spice and steeped black cherry fruit notes. A beam of pure cassis drives through this version, and the finish pulls everything together with a mouthwatering brambly edge that should soften slowly over time. A riveting display of brawny power, unbridled energy and high-level terroir...99" WS 03/13

With 52% Merlot 36% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Petit Verdot in the blend the wine opens with smoke oak boysenberry cassis and earthy tones. Soft cassis flavors and a long finish make this a strong surprisingly fresh and ample effort for a second wine. Jeff Leve.
Haut-Brion From a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc this unique blend is made from one of the highest concentrations of Cabernet Sauvignon in the history of the property. In 2010 the wine reached 14.6% alcohol with a pH of 3.63. This combination allows for more ripeness as well as greater freshness. The effective yields are lower in 2010. Only 42% of the crop was included in the Grand Vin. For those that like statistics 2009 Haut Brion is slightly lower in alcohol at 14.2 % alcohol with a pH of 3.9. . 2010 Chateau Haut Brion is deep ruby with a purple rim that shines in the glass. The wine is filled with smoke earth hot stones spice blackberry cassis and hints of licorice. Full bodied and concentrated with multiple layers of spicy fresh rich dark fruit and cassis flavors that fill your palate this elegant regal wine builds in the mouth. From the first touch on your palate it s difficult to imagine the incredible length found in this wine. I
52% merlot 36% cabernet sauvignon 10% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Alcohol of 14.4%. A very perfumed nose of spice vanilla red licorice and blue fruits lead to a rich balanced palate full of fresh fruit. Very taut at this stage the tannins hide inside the structure only to briefly reveal themselves at the end. With a finish that is exceptionally long this is very tasty. Enjoy over the next 20 years. Cory Gowan.
57% cabernet sauvignon 23% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. An interesting aside - 2010 is the first vintage in history where the larger bottles (anything above a magnum) - will also come in Haut-Brion s trademark sloping bottle. Tiny production this year of only around 8 000 cases representing 42% of total wine made and a decrease of 30% from 2009. A very tight and elegant nose of black cherry strawberry and black tea emerges from within. On the palate it is rich and refreshing with a tamed ripeness that lasts for countless minutes. This is a stacked deep wine that will take some time to come out of its shell but will cellar well for 50+ years. Cory Gowan.
Good deep red-ruby. Herbal blackberry licorice and gunflint on the nose. Slightly medicinal flavors of dark fruits and licorice show moderate fruit intensity but complex mineral graphite and cedar elements. The moderately sweet ripe finish is kept fresh by firm ripe tannins and juicy acidity. Seems sweeter and sappier than when I tasted it at the Primeurs a couple years ago but it s still one of the more austere Clarence de Haut-Brions in some time. (ID) Stephen Tanzers IWC.
