Haut-Brion From a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc this unique blend is made from one of the highest concentrations of Cabernet Sauvignon in the history of the property. In 2010 the wine reached 14.6% alcohol with a pH of 3.63. This combination allows for more ripeness as well as greater freshness. The effective yields are lower in 2010. Only 42% of the crop was included in the Grand Vin. For those that like statistics 2009 Haut Brion is slightly lower in alcohol at 14.2 % alcohol with a pH of 3.9. . 2010 Chateau Haut Brion is deep ruby with a purple rim that shines in the glass. The wine is filled with smoke earth hot stones spice blackberry cassis and hints of licorice. Full bodied and concentrated with multiple layers of spicy fresh rich dark fruit and cassis flavors that fill your palate this elegant regal wine builds in the mouth. From the first touch on your palate it s difficult to imagine the incredible length found in this wine. I timed the finish twice to make sure I had not lost track of the time. I shook my watch to ensure it was running correctly. This incredible wine remains on your palate for close to 80 seconds! Balanced harmonious and regal this will be an amazing wine to experience at maturity. Jeff Leve.

52% merlot 36% cabernet sauvignon 10% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot. Alcohol of 14.4%. A very perfumed nose of spice vanilla red licorice and blue fruits lead to a rich balanced palate full of fresh fruit. Very taut at this stage the tannins hide inside the structure only to briefly reveal themselves at the end. With a finish that is exceptionally long this is very tasty. Enjoy over the next 20 years. Cory Gowan.

57% cabernet sauvignon 23% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. An interesting aside - 2010 is the first vintage in history where the larger bottles (anything above a magnum) - will also come in Haut-Brion s trademark sloping bottle. Tiny production this year of only around 8 000 cases representing 42% of total wine made and a decrease of 30% from 2009. A very tight and elegant nose of black cherry strawberry and black tea emerges from within. On the palate it is rich and refreshing with a tamed

This is very spicy with dried mushroom aromas with dark fruits and plum undertones. Sweet tobacco as well. This is full-bodied with lots of tannins that are chewy and firm. This is muscular for HB and flexing it. Try in 2020. James Suckling.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Following a harvest that finished on October 10, Haut-Brion produced a 2010 that should turn out to be one of its *all-time greats*... an amazing feat given what they have accomplished over recent vintages. A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc that came in at 14.6% alcohol, the 2010 boasts an opaque purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of scorched earth/burning embers, blueberries, black currant liqueur and crushed rocks. Full and opulent with *nobility, finesse, purity and elegance*, this *amazing* effort possesses extraordinary levels of extract as well as formidable, but sweet, well-integrated tannins. It requires 8-10 years of cellaring and should drink well for 50+ years."*-Robert Parker Wine Advocate (98-100 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*
