Haut brion 2016Wines
Bright red with garnet-red and purple highlights. The nose is very expressive and complex: a combination of red and black fruit, violets, etc., plus a remarkable impression of freshness! The wine starts out full-bodied and juicy on the palate, then develops with incredible refinement, showing rich tannin and plenty of volume, but no aggressiveness. The wine is broad-based and thick, but not heavy. Not a hair out of place, nothing to excess. And what a flavor!!! This Haut-Brion is undoubtedly one of the château’s greatest successes.
Grape blend: Merlot: 56% / Cabernet Franc: 6.5% / Cabernet Sauvignon: 37.5%
