Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 88

Fresh but reticent black cherry-dominated nose. More closed than the '96 following the bottling, and a bit disjointed today. Seems drier than the '96, but has plenty of underlying sweetness, solid structure, and nicely buffered tannins.

One of the finest second wines being made in Bordeaux is Haut-Brion's Bahans-Haut-Brion. I have drunk several cases of the remarkable 1989, and I believe the 1995 and 1996 both merit consumer interest. The 1995 is an aromatic, round, complex, elegant wine that possesses all the characteristics of the bigger, richer 1996, but less depth, and more immediate appeal. Very "Graves" with its smoky, roasted nose and sweet, smoke-infused black cherry and currant fruit, it should drink well for a decade.

Really pretty aromas of cedar, violet and licorice, with hints of dark fruits. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Delicious.

Drink Dates: 1999-2004
Bahans tasting: 1989, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2000. 1995 is definitely the weakest of the bunch. Thin and dilute with the standard flavors. It was better when it was young.

About This Producer


Since its founding in 1525, Chateau Haut-Brion has passed between many illustrious owners, including admirals, archbishops, and mayors of Bordeaux. In recent years, the estate has come under the ownership of Clarence Douglas Dillon, Ambassador of the United States in Paris and Minister of Finance under President John F. Kennedy, making it the only American-owned First Growth property. Currently, Dillon's granddaughter, the Duchesse de Mouchy, oversees Haut-Brion, among many others, under the public limited company of "Domaine Clarence Dillon."

Chateau Haut-Brion is also the only First Growth property from the 1855 Classification that lies outside of the Medoc and Sauternes. Located in Pessac, within the Graves region, just one mile from the city of Bordeaux, the wine of Chateau Haut-Brion is highly sought-after, landing it among the most expensive and prestigious wines in France. The estate vineyards, dominated by gravel and clay, are planted to both red and white varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc; and Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Haut-Brion is characterized by earthy scents, ripe fruit, tobacco and mineral, revealing aromas of chocolate and smoke and creating an elegant and harmonious wine that is highly structured, allowing it to age seamlessly.
