Château La Tour Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

A very enjoyable 21 year old, Left Bank Bordeaux, from Pessac Léognan.

Showing black fruits with earth, wet leaves, herbs, oak, spices, chocolates, pencil lead, black pepper, forest floor and tobacco leaf.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

A great quality wine with good complexity and mouthfeel. I had it blind, and called it right. Missed the vintage by 2 years 😊

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins and structure (90 minutes).

Very enjoyable now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 15 years.

13% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1966

Tawny and dark. Almost opaque. Notes of cola, smoked meat, earth and with air some sweet fruit emerges. Briary. Short finish. This showed well and held steady over 5 hours. Nice showing. — 10 days ago

Chateau Bahans Haut-Brion

Pessac-Leognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Very underwhelming for the price. Much better wines for half the price or more.

45+ minute decant and could use more. If I was having this blind I would have guessed Napa Blend. Almost black in color. Darkest wine I’ve ever seen. Nose is mild with cherry and tar. Flavor is fruit forward but fairly tame and average. Very short finish. Not bad, but horrible QPR. Can I get a refund?

Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

The 2011 Chateau Haut-Brion is one of the best wines made from this challenging vintage in Bordeaux. Showing off its dark hue, on the nose this Haut-Brion opens with wonderful damp earth aromas with wild mushroom and peat moss that combine with the dark fruits and milk chocolate undertones. The palate shows incredible freshness and tension with red bell pepper, red cherry, anise and cassis accents. I admire the strong salinity that weaves through the mid-palate. This finishes strong with bright minerals that connect with the dark fruits. While not exceedingly rich, this is a wonderful wine from what was a challenging vintage in Bordeaux. This is classic Bordeaux with great elegance and finesse. Drink 2021-2040- 94 — 4 days ago

Opened a few fun bottles to celebrate my birthday this past weekend. Cheers to 31!

Enjoyed en mag as a birth year wine on my birthday. I went back and forth with how much to decant (if at all), and ended up just giving this about 10-15mins to blow off some funk while still in bottle and the fireworks started. Youthful. In the glass, deep, dark purple with a black core. Didn’t notice any bricking. Huge aromatics of graphite, dusty yet ripe blackberries, bay leaf and saddle leather. From start to finish, the wine was still pretty dense with good tannic structure. The palate showed more sweet pipe tobacco, black fruits and dark cocoa dusted dates. We enjoyed this over the course of probably an hour and a half and it stood strong the entire time and never fell off. A gorgeous wine!
