Deep red colour; notes of red fruits with a certain dryness on the nose; smooth and elegant on the palate with noters of cherries; soem dryness at the end. N.B. Sten guessed it was Haut Brion on a blind tasting!

I really enjoy Haut Brion in years that are not the "vintage of the century." In these years Haut Brion seems to have terrific finesse (and lower prices). This wine is rich, slightly spicy with smoky flavor in a well balanced long finish. Evolves for hours in the glass or bottle.

Powerful with good balance of berries and chocolate taste. Long after taste. Need several hours for breathing.

Blackberry, cedar and currant with great balance. Needs three hours of air. Needs more time in bottle to really show it's stuff.
