Food Pairings for Châteauhaut-Brion Blanc Pessac-Leognan
Deep ruby with paler rims. Medium and developing nose of blackberry, cigar box, and earth. Medium- acidity, medium tannin and medium+ body. Medium flavor of blackberry, smoke, earth. Acceptable quality as it is not complex but got a typical Graves earthy note. Ready to drink and can keep.
External Reviews for Châteauhaut-Brion Blanc Pessac-Leognan
For the vintage, this is an austere wine, emphasizing tannins over fruit. the fruit is certainly rich, and the tannins are dusty rather than dry, but it is a wine that is developing more slowly, suggesting it is also a long-term cellar candidate.
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 smoke, soil overtones, and subtle wood. The acidity is low, the tannin is present, and the overall quality is pure and well-balanced. This is a classic example of finesse and elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.
Wonderful finesse and length to this wine. Loads of plum and berry, with hints of raspberry. Full-bodied, with a solid, velvety core of ripe fruit and tannins. Long finish. One of the few Pessacs better in 2000 than 1998. American-owned. Best after 2010.
Never an easy wine to evaluate young, Haut-Bailly, which I have a tendency to underestimate, is a wine of undeniable finesse, elegance, and restraint. It often tastes weak and insubstantial when 5-6 months old, and for that reason I was surprised by the strong performance of the 2000. The new American owners are obviously making a stricter selection.
Good bright ruby red. Deep, smoky aromas of plum syrup, raspberry, tobacco, iron and roasted nuts. Lush, silky and sweet, with insidious vinosity keeping the lush plum and tobacco flavors fresh and delineated. The suave Merlot tannins spread out to cover the entire palate. Much more a Merlot-dominated wine than the 2001, which is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine is light to medium-bodied, with sweet currant and smoke-infused flavors and some oak in the background, but plenty of red fruits, vanilla, and dried herbs. This is a soft, well-balanced wine to drink now and over the next 12-15 years.
An elegant, dark ruby/purple-tinged effort displaying notes of tobacco smoke intermixed with sweet currant, cherry, and some toast, this medium-bodied wine has the hallmark purity married graciously with nicely concentrated fruit. The tannins are sweet but present and give definition to this well-made Pessac-Leognan. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016.
