Chateau Haut Brion 1992
|Brand||Chateau Haut Brion|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
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.
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
Refined and delicious, offering mineral, berry, cherry and toasted oak flavors, medium-to-light body, fine tannins and a long finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
