Château Haut-Brion Rouge
Very beautiful, deep, garnet-red colour.
The nose is ripe and concentrated. After swirling in the glass, it
becomes more complex with hints of very ripe
– but not excessively so – red and black fruit.
There are also liquorice nuances and a soupçon of clove.
The wine starts out with a very soft mouth feel and immediately
shows tremendous volume and depth in every respect, with flavours
reminiscent of ripe fruit and cocoa beans.
The long aftertaste features mocha and slightly bitter coffee nuances.
Barrel ageing will undoubtedly bring out more of this wine’s greatness
and confirm its place among the finest vintages of Château Haut-Brion.
The year 2015 appears to be the warmest and sunniest, throughout our country, since the beginning of meteorological statistics. A long heat wave and dry period allowed to achieve excellent flowering conditions until the arrival, in August, of miraculous rains.This rain enabled the vines to maintain the necessary water reserves and to provide requisite nourishment for perfect ripeness. The harvest began in September under a clear blue sky. Thanks to this ideal weather, we were able to wait for optimum ripeness for each grape variety. All the conditions are there to allow 2015 to join the greatest vintages of Bordeaux.
