The mineral-laced 2005 Haut Brion (56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc) is exquisite. With its elegance and finesse, it is not as powerful as La Mission, but the nobility and complexity of the aromatics, incredible fragrance (subtle smoke and blue, red, and black fruits) that persists in the glass, full-bodied mouthfeel (though very light and delicate on its feet), and incredible length characterize this great Haut-Brion. It is just starting to drink well, and should continue to do so for at least another three decades. It is a tour de force in winemaking, but only 9,000 cases were produced.

Tasting note


The 2005 Chateau Haut-Brion is a testament to the grandeur of Bordeaux's Pessac-Leognan appellation. This wine, with its deep ruby-red hue, exudes rich and intense aromas of ripe red fruits, complemented by luxurious truffle notes. On the palate, it reveals a fabulous richness and a voluptuous texture, with flavors of smoke, cigar, and roasted coffee beans that mingle with the freshness of currants and cherries. The wine's elegance is matched by its fine structure, which is open and inviting rather than constrictive, leading to a long, silky finish that lingers with grace. With its harmonious power and extraordinary aromatic persistence, this vintage is a true celebration of balance and finesse.
