Château Haut-Brion Rouge
The truly beautiful bouquet has notes of black fruit such
as blackberry and blackcurrant along with empyreumatic overtones.
The wine shows smooth, well-structured tannin on the palate,
combining power and elegance from the beginning to the end.
2014 was marked by an extraordinary Indian summer that saved the vintage. Fine spring weather was conducive to a good start to the growing season. However, challenging summer conditions seriously slowed down ripening. Fortunately, the month of September was absolutely beautiful, with dry, extremely sunny weather accompanied by highs of close to 30°C. This superb weather, with cool night-time temperatures, enabled the grapes to ripen beautifully, and they were able to be brought into the vat house having reached a perfect level of ripeness.
