Forty percent of the 1992 harvest was eliminated from Haut-Brion's final blend. The result is a stylish yet authoritatively flavored wine that reminds me of a slightly down-sized version of the superb 1985. A beautiful deep ruby color is followed by a penetrating bouquet of black fruits, smoke, and minerals. Fine ripeness and outstanding richness allied to medium body, an elegant personality, and a supple, moderately tannic finish suggest this wine will be mature in 4-5 years and last for 15-20.

Has less richness than the 1993, showing lovely berry and black cherry flavors that shine through a layer of grainy tannins.--Haut-Brion vertical.

Very pretty wine. Violets, tanned leather, prune, black pepper, currant, and ribena. Just a hint of silky tannins, gorgeous, still striking acid.
