The famed First Growth Bordeaux, Chateau Haut Brion has excelled vintage after vintage with superb quality wines that will live on for decades and retain their value as one of the most collectible wines in the world. This 2006 was scored 96 points by Robert Parker who said "The 2006 Haut-Brion performed even better from bottle than it did from barrel. Sixty-four percent of the production went into this wine, and while it displays the vintage’s powerful tannins and structure, it possesses superb concentration, and the minerality/scorched earth notes of a great Haut-Brion. Medium to full-bodied, with perhaps not quite the fleshiness of the 2005 or 2000, it is built more along the lines of the 1998 and 1996. It is a brilliant effort displaying sensational purity, texture, and length that should be exceptionally long-lived. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035." This is the lowest price we've ever seen for this wine so don't hesitate, it won't last!

Medium ruby-red. Inviting aromas of plum, warm stones, red licorice and menthol. Suave, gentle and elegantly styled; distinctly sweeter and lusher today than the La Mission, with even more mid-palate depth. Showing more red fruits today as well, with... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Jean-Philippe Delmass team at Domaine Clarence Dillon produced two excellent wines in 2006 from the neighboring properties of Haut-Brion and La Mission. Both share an aristocratic stature, with Haut-Brion more immediately powerful and expressive in ... Wine & Spirits. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Haut Brion 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Manager Jean-Philippe Delmas (Jean Delmas' son) has every right to be<br/>enormously proud of his wines this year, not least his jewel in the crown,<br/>First Growth Ch. Haut-Brion. The 2006 is as powerful and masculine as ever, a<br/>taut, brooding mass of seriously intense ripe plum, strawberry and damson fruit<br/>packed with earthy minerality and spice. The nose is rich and chocolatey, while<br/>the huge tannins on the palate suggest that this is one to lay down to enjoy in<br/>your dotage. Made from 57% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc<br/>this is a very serious, very impressive and very intense Ch. Haut-Brion.
