Premier Cru Classé of Graves in 1855, the only one among Médoc wines, Château Haut Brion is the jewel of the Pessac Léognan appellation. Owned by the Dillon family since 1935, the vineyard is located in the commune of Pessac, a few kilometers south-west of Bordeaux. Its wines are characterized first of all by their discretion, their restraint, then by their unique signature expression of their terroir with notes of chocolate, cedar wood. On the attack on the palate, the tannins are precise and very smooth, then the power of the wines is revealed and the finish is surprisingly long. Superlatives are lacking when it comes to qualifying Château Haut Brion.
The year 2018, was magnificent, for this Château Haut Brion 2018, a very fine wine which presents multiple aromas such as cherry, chocolate, and black fruits. On the palate, the attack is fine, the wine is round, with a beautiful aromatic richness. This Grand Cru has great aging potential, lasting around ten years.
The advice of 12bouteilles: This legendary wine must be kept in cellars for a few more years. If you taste it, it must be decanted at least 2 hours before tasting to appreciate its true value.
