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.
(...) 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
An impressive, powerful, broad, surprisingly masculine and deep effort. Its inky/blue/purple colour is accompanied by an exceptional bouquet of powdered rock, blackberries, blueberries, spring flowers, and hints of camphor as well as espresso roast.
