Floral nose of ripe fruits with hints of licorice and some smoky, tarry minerality. Rich, coating mouthfeel. Great meaty notes of red berry and a nice savory quality, like the richness of bone marrow. I'd say this wine needs food. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 8/7/10

Night OnePurple flowers, lavendar and lilac, just float out of the glass, along with some dark plum and plum skins. On the palate the same flowers take center stage. There is fruit there, too, but it is hidden behind strong tannins that scream out for more years in the cellar. Plums, nee plum skins, are the primary fruit, but more will surely come out of hiding on Night Two. I hope you will join me to see if my prediction comes true.Night TwoFloral aromas once again lead the nose on Night Two, but the additional time with some air brought out black fruit, more blackberry than blackcurrant, but both were there. The palate has more to offer than on Night One, but the overall impression is that this could use more time. Pencil lead, cassis, and tart plum skins are slowly wrapped in firm tannins as it moves from initial attack to mid-palate, where a hint of unsweetened chocolate makes a quick appearance. Acids and tannins are both pwoerful, but well-balanced. The finish is long.This is good but still young. The sense of it is that it is just waking up now, just starting to come out of a closed phase. It might well be much better in as little as a year or two. There is plenty of backbone, acid and tannins, to give it time to grow and knit together.

Haut-Brion's 2001 possesses an unmistakable nobility as well as a burgeoning complexity. It reveals pure notes of sweet and sour cherries, black currants, licorice, smoke, and crushed stones. Medium-bodied with excellent purity, firm tannin, and an angular, structured finish.

Slightly darker colour. Thicker, denser and sweeter than the La Mission on the nose but much tighter and more tannic on the palate. Chewy and clearly set for great things. 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Haut Brion 3000ml

This smells like a deep, curranty fruit bomb, and the flavors follow with wild berry preserves. It emphasizes merlot fruit within a dry tannic structure, overall plump and soft. To enjoy now or in five years.

The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2001 Haut-Bailly reveals sweet, pure, elegant aromas of currants, toast, and cigar smoke. With wonderful sweetness, fine tannins, a delicate, nuanced personality, and a long, persistent finish, this well-made, impressive Pessac-Leognan will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 12ndash;14 years.

Shows enticing aromas of blackberries and cherries that follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Subtle and refined. Best after 2007.

Haut-Brion s 2001 which was bottled late (the end of September 2003) possesses an unmistakable nobility as well as a burgeoning complexity. Plum/purple to the rim this blend of 52% Merlot 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc is playing it close to the vest having closed down considerably after bottling. Nevertheless it reveals pure notes of sweet and sour cherries black currants licorice smoke and crushed stones. Medium-bodied with excellent purity firm tannin and an angul
