External Reviews for Château Haut-Brion Pessac Leognan Very Lightly Nicked Label
This is the best Haut-Brion since 1959 and perhaps one of the best Bordeaux we have ever tasted. It has loads of character, packed to the brim with fruit and tannins. A wine for the next century. Enjoyable now, but much better after 1998.
Dark ruby-garnet color. Dried berry character, with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Rather reserved style of Haut-Brion. Best after 2005.
A splendid Haut-Brion with wonderful elegance. Refines 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. Best after 2001.
There is no denying the greatness in this Bordeaux, but the bricklike, earthy aromas and flavors are bound to polarize wine lovers. Very complex, hard and tannic, it needs until at least the year 2000 to begin to show what it has.
Patience will be rewarded with this style of Bordeaux that typifies restraint and subtlety. The deep ruby-colored 2000 is an impressive youthful Haut-Bailly. It offers endearing notes of black cherries, raspberries, and currants mixed with tobacco sm... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Haut Bailly 750ml
Complex aromas of blackberries, tobacco and cedar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with ripe, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very beautiful. Best after 2009.
The essence of Graves, with great concentration but no rough edges. The fruit and tannins are rich yet fully integrated, and the tobacco and cedar notes are classic for this estate. Best after 2000.
Beautiful color, very deep with a mixing of the Haut-Brion ruby and its purple-violet shade of youth. Swishing the wine around in the glass gives a notion of its density. This complexity is followed up in the aromas that suddenly burst forth all at once: a woody hint of fine polished oak, mulberry jam, cherry pits, a touch of blackcurrant, and the bittersweet of mango. One discovers this complexness again with even more violence in the mouth. The specific notes of this vintage: the finesse of mocha, the toasted trace of praline all join with the above, melding together with tannins of great complexity and softness. The finish is never ending… Exceptional bottle. To be drunk today, tomorrow and surely even 100 years from now.
