Dark robe; its nose evokes at first fresh fruits aromas then develops towards a touch of spice. It is charming in their straight forward spontaneity. Its flavour is both firm and well-rounded, brought out by a good acidity and fine tannins.
A harmonious and elegant wine showing no heaviness. There is generous volume and roundness, and certainly no lack of complexity and finesse. Our senses tingle with sensations galore: a vintage that simply magnifies the noble character of the terroir.
Deep and intense red color. The bouquet releases the typical aromas of black fruits and blackcurrant with added spices. The attack on the palate is pronounced, showing a structure that is both elegant and balanced. All together the wine allies finesse, freshness and persistence.
“Perfumed, floral notes suggestive of violets, crushed stone and blueberry aromas. In the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and lush but not over the top, showing great balance and elegance on the lengthy finish.” Parker 93 (The Wine Advocate | 236)
Syrah 90%, Grenache 10%
(...) 2017 Haut-Brion sashays gracefully out of the glass with fragrant notions of black raspberries, kirsch, dark chocolate, star anise and candied violets with a core of warm red and black currants and a touch of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with red and black fruit layers, superbly supported by firm, ripe, finely grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced. robertparker.com
Deep, dense color, very saturated. Fine and complex nose with a very pure expression of fruit, notes of cedar. The palate is full, powerful attack. Fleshy, dense mid-palate, carried by the rich tannins. Exquisite finish supported by a sublime tannic structure, fine, elegant and balanced. This wine embodies the purity of fruit in harmony with a sumptuous tannic structure.
