Beskrivelse

Monsieur Clarence Dillon var i 1935 på vej til Saint-Emilion, for at købe Château Cheval Blanc. På vejen for han vild og havnede på Haut- Brion - og så købte han det i stedet. Slottet ledes i dag af hans barnebarn, som (modsat Clarence Dillon) ikke overlader det mindste til tilfældighederne. Haut-Brion er den mest stabile af alle 1. Cru'erne, og leverer utrolige vine, selv i håbløse årgange. Vinens vartegn kan beskrives med ét ord: charme.

  • 95P - International Wine Report: "The 2006 Chateau Haut-Brion is a stunning effort from this famed Grand Cru estate. Comprised of 57% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the wine needs more than a one hour decant to display its dazzling aromatics and flavors. As this begins to open it releases overwhelming aromas of mocha, sage, anise and gorgeous cassis all taking shape beautifully in the glass. The red blend has spectacular, concentrated flavors of dark fruits layered with anise, smoke, spicebox, tar and freshly ground coffee. Moderately tannic at this stage, this age-worthy wine is just starting all come together. Overall, the 2006 is a wonderful showing, offering an impressive blend of flavors and minerality, with an exceedingly long finish. This is an incredible effort from Haut- Brion in a difficult vintage. (Best 2016-2040)"
  • 92-94 pts Robert Parker; "This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux's dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines."
  • 92-94 pts Wine Spectator; "Captivating aromas of coffee, spice, violets and cedar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with refined tannins and a long finish. Lovely refinement for the vintage."
