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.

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.

...Black cherry, tobacco and minerals on the nose. Dense but juicy and sharply delineated, thanks to its firm spine of acidity. A bit compact today, but finishes with lovely musky sweetness, firm but ripe tannins and superb length. Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml

Very complex, with blackberries, flowers and minerals. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, sweet fruit aftertaste. Refined La Mission. Beautiful. Best after 2008. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml

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.

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.
