Elegant and complex, Château Haut-Brion red presents mineral aromas and a unique complexity. Its strength lays in the finish, which is surprisingly long. This aromatic persistence is due to its very noble origins.

Tasting notes

The wine is not as supple and velvety as the 89.
Its structure is, more of a classic vintage.
Comparable to the 88, showing complexity,
finess and elegance which define
Haut-Brion’s great years.

The weather

A warm winter so an exceptionally early budding. The start of spring was cold but summer was exceptionally hot and dry. Little rain in September allowed an abundant and very healthy crop.
