For an Haut-Brion, this is huge. Every characteristic suggests power, from the dark color, through the knock-out perfumes, full of dark, brooding fruits. the flavors are black, intense and ripe. It is a delicious wine, surprisingly ready to drink. And yes, just at the end, there is a small hint of the delicacy and elegance that is true Haut-Brion.

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.

Complex aromas of black licorice, tobacco and cedar with red fruits. Full-bodied, with superseductive, silky tannins, loads of fruit and a finish that lasts for minutes. A beauty in all the sense of the word. Best after 2012.

Has wonderful richness and suppleness, lovely fruit and harmony. A superb example of a graceful, balanced wine that is delicious now and can evolve over many years.

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.

Very good deep red-ruby. Sweet, highly expressive aromas of redcurrant, hot stones, roasted plum, woodsmoke and tobacco. Fuller and more textured in the middle palate, with a chewy, tactile mouth feel that suggests strong extract and a wonderfully pliant texture. A firm mineral underpinning and sound acids frame the fruit. Expansive and seductively sweet in the mouth. Finishes very long and ripe, with thoroughly civilized tannins.

A wine of complexity and harmony rather than power, Haut-Brion is showing tobacco, cedar and leather aromas melded with some fairly serious black fruit. It resembles the superb 1985 at a similar stage, suggesting this has a good ten years before it peaks. And it will be lovely for 20 years thereafter.

Winemaker's Notes:

"... The greatest dry white of the vintage is undeniably Haut-Brion-Blanc, which was harvested on August 13-14. In contrast to what I expected, this white is not out of balance, yet it possesses more mid-palate as well as higher alcohol and glycerin than usual. However, it is not over the top, being remarkably well balanced and richly fruity, with no evidence of over-ripeness or exoticism." 96-100/100 pts. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - April 2004)
