Chateau Haut Brion 1997
|Brand||Chateau Haut Brion|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
This light to middle-weight Haut-Brion exhibits an evolved, sweet red and black currant nose with notions of scorched earth, minerals, and tobacco. Although not big, it exhibits fine ripeness, harmony, and elegance, velvety tannin, and sweet fruit presented in a charming, open-knit, evolved format. The wine may develop even more complexity, meriting a higher score.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
A stunningly gorgeous red. Beautiful aromas of licorice, berries and flowers. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, succulent finish. Very fine indeed.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
