Château Haut Brion

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Comment dire... j’ai bu beaucoup de vieux bordeaux mais je pense que celui-ci est le meilleur que j’ai goûté de ma vie, Je les aimes avec de l’age et celui-ci était définitivement le plus abouti. Bouteille parfaite, bu à mon sens à son peak. Des couches de saveurs, une complexité hors norme, le fruit est encore bien présent accompagné de sous-bois, de fumée, de boite à cigare, de terre. Mais surtout une persistance en bouche que j’ai rarement vu. J’en rêve encore. Grand vin — 9 days ago

Château Belgrave

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Classic Bordeaux. Lovely hint of dry dung in the nose. Underbrush, twigs and stems, spicebox, pencil shavings and fading forestfruit. Still some tannic grip on the long and balanced finish.
Nice.

Les Brulières de Beychevelle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Very nice wine made by Chateau Beychevelle, really enjoyable. Based on enjoying both this and the Amiral from 2015 I guess it is almost time to splurge on the main wine. — 16 days ago

Les hauts de Larrivet Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Deep ruby hue with secondary hues of garnet. Black cherry, blackberry, plum, cassis, black licorice, anise, dark baking spices, coffee bean, dark chocolate, mossy wet earth and forest floor notes on the nose and consistent notes on the palate. Concentrated fruit. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from Pessac-Leognan, Gaves. The pork chop pairing really brings forward the spice elements in the wine. Vintage 2014. ABV 13.5%. — 20 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2001

2001
On doit lui laisser 1-2 heures dans le verre pour que la magie s opère. Un nez de fromage au départ qui c’est volatilisé pour laisser place à un grand vin complexe!

Château de Villegeorge

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

To fully understand the Lurton family one needs to be a professional genealogist, but if you meet a Lurton in Bordeaux it would be safe to bet she/he is involved in wine business. Marie-Laure is one of the 10 children of Lucien Lurton, and she owns Chateau de Villegeorge in Haut-Médoc and Tour de Bessan in Margaux. Villegeorge 2010 is blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (79%) and Merlot (21%). Attractive nose of cassis, cedar wood and violets. Still plenty of very ripe fruit at 10 years old, good concentration and length. Fine value today at 28 euro. — 5 days ago

Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Blackberry jam nose with some leather, tar and leaf litter. Color is quite opaque and garnet with just a little bricking. Lots of dark ripe fruit and preserved fruit on the palate. Full body, quite rich, powdery, and tannins still quite prominent. Very satisfying. Just entering its prime- may be better in 5-10. — 15 days ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

A marvelous wine in an absolutely beautiful place. The first sip gave me goose bumps. Just such a classic Bordeaux in the best sense. No decant, slight chill, this is ready to go and fully integrated. Blackcurrant on the nose and palate. Incredible freshness and acid. Completely mouth filling and balanced. Certainly one of the best Bordeaux’s I’ve had in a long time. Amazing with grilled dry aged ribeyes. — 10 days ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

Felt so young still. Lots of bell pepper smells but also cassis, leather and tobacco. Tanins were still present but don't perturb the enjoyment of the wine.... — 8 days ago

La Clarté de Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2019 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is exquisite. It is a wine of unreal harmony that balances the richness of the year with the energy that comes from picking the Sémillon earlier than in the past. Orchard fruit, mint, white flowers, green apple and lemon peel give La Clarté its briskness and breezy tension. The Sauvignon Blanc is quite expressive today. The 2019 was bottled on April 28, 2020. It clearly needs time to come together. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, June 2020)
