Château Haut-Brion Rouge
The wine is very aromatic and harmonious with incredibly
mellowed tannins and quite low acidity.
It could be assumed it will be a powerful wine, yet at the same
time one with plenty of subtlety and harmony.
Through its structure and smoothness, this wine is reminiscent
of 1959 both in terms of the weather and the volume of the harvest.
An historically early year. Throughout the period of growth, the weather was especially warm, sunny and dry. The conditions were thus ideal for budding, flowering, the véraison (onset of ripening) ripening and the harvest. An outstanding year can only produce an outstanding wine.
