Tasted from an ex-château bottle in Bordeaux, I was not surprised to find the 2000 Château Haut-Brion flirting with perfection. The nose is simply breathtaking - quintessential Haut-Brion with ebullient red berry fruit, roasted herbs, gravel, terracotta tiles on a warm summer's day...it is simply wave after wave of intoxicating scents that could bring even the most stoic person to tears of joy. The palate displays heavenly balance, pitch-perfect acidity, perhaps spicier than previous bottles that I have tasted, and what depth and dimension in this outstanding wine. That hint of graphite on the finish is a cheeky nod to Pauillac, as if to thumb its nose at the First Growths, because alongside Château Latour, almost by stealth, the Haut-Brion is one of the greatest Bordeaux in this millennial year. Tasted November 2014.

Tasting note


The 2000 Chateau Haut-Brion is a testament to the grandeur of Bordeaux's Pessac-Leognan appellation. This wine exudes a deep ruby-red hue, hinting at the complexity within. Aromas of ripe fruit, cocoa butter, and polished cedary oak lead to a palate where dark red fruits are elegantly intertwined with fine tannins. The wine's medium to full body is adorned with notes of cocoa, cedar, and graphite, while the rich texture promises a spectacular evolution. With perfectly balanced alcohol and acidity, the finish is long, cedary, and simply unforgettable. A wine that is not only enjoyable today but will continue to captivate for a century or more.
