Robert Parker (93)

In a vintage that produced a lot of high acid, emaciated dry whites, Haut-Brion's 1996 is the wine of the vintage. It displays exceptional concentration, tangy acidity, and gorgeously layered flavors of buttery citrus-like fruit, olives, and smoke. This medium-bodied, concentrated wine is quite backward. It will need a considerable amount of bottle age to shed some of its structure. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.

Wonderful white Bordeaux. A wine with masses of almond, fresh apple and honey aromas and flavors and more opulent, baked apple and cream flavors flowing through. Full-bodied and very rich, with a long, lingering finish.
