Château Haut Brion Premier Cru Classé Graves/pessac-Léognan a.c 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefes, sattes Granat mit lila Schimmer am Rand und violetten Reflexen in der Mitte. Erste Naseneindrücke mit pechschwarzen Beeren, noblem Havanna-Tabak, Teernoten, schwarze Trüffel, Gewürznelken, getrocknete Lorbeerblätter, Minze und frischer Thymian. Im Gaumen fest, mit reifen Gerbstoffen ausgestattet, die gigantische Beerenaromatik jede Sekunde im schwarzbeerigen Bereich bleibend, minutenlanger Nachklang, für den nötigen Nachdruck sorgend.
