Tropical fruits commingle with the typical aromas of molasses, orange peel, and dried apricots. Hint of mint as well. Salted sweetness is countered by abundant fresh acidity. Would like to see a bit more viscosity on the medium to full body.
A simple good pairing with dark chocolate. Very youthful at 23 years. — 9 days ago
Very interesting nose of caramel and lemon and a waxy character. Still has very vibrant fruit and a tropical fruit finish. From a half bottle. 👍👍 — 22 days ago
A great vintage for this producer, the wine is excellent now and likely to improve of course; gold color with a highly viscous heavy swirl; nose is cremes, desserts, caramelized nuts, tropical fruit, and honey, and a slight minerality; mouthcovering sumptuous taste with a fresh acidity to keep the backbone. — a month ago
Strong Haut Brion from 2001. Opened about an hour before the steak course arrived, by which time it developed an more intense but a very pretty nose of black fruits, cedar, some tobacco and herbs. The mouth feel was good and stood up to a grass fed ribeye steak. 2001 isn’t a standout year but it is good shoulder vintage. — 22 days ago
Nicely evolved with jammy black fruit, cassis, a touch of tomato jam, a whiff of cedar. More super Tuscan on the nose vs a classical Pessac.
Poised, impeccably balanced and so elegant on the palate. Seamless! The tannins fine, dusty and completely mellowed down, the aftertaste really compelling. Still not very classical Bordeaux, but delicious nonetheless! — 2 days ago
2010 vintage in 2021. Berries on the nose with a dry, tannin finish. A great value at $30. — 19 days ago
