Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Incredible depth of color rim to rim without variation. Inky. Showing slight brick under strong light. Nose of rye toast, tobacco, turned earth, black cherry, oak bark, crumbly roses, dried lavender, and sage. Descriptors do not do justice to the seamless whole of the smells, which are sewn together with espresso and bay leaf, allspice and forest notes. Smooth and silky tannins slip over medium mouthfeel of dried mushroom and graphite, re-emerge as round textural tapestries, filled with candle smoke, dark, rich cherry and ripe black currants. A stunner that needed days of exposure to fully emerge. Enticing and exquisite.

This was a pretty bangin' in a Lopez de Heredia kind of way...salty, nutty, oyster shell, minerally citrus...it's so great to try old wines like this for the fun surprise but also the taste memory. #alwayslearning #expandthatpalate #lavillehautbrion #hautbrion — 7 years ago

This #hautbrion is missing lift and its structure has faded away but the delicateness and complexity is fantastic. There are no living fruits left but there is smoke, licorice, peppers, forest floor, and a seductive meatiness along with some #bordeaux staples. Moderate intensity and med + length. Drink up now. #pessacleognan #premiergrandcru #ctbucklinwine — 8 years ago

This was pretty decent @burdigalanyc the other night, showed some glimmer of youth, with loads of complex tertiary. Excellent energy and all around pleasantry, showing it's pedigree in spades.

Was not expecting much from this 88 BDX but wow did it exceed all expectations. Drinking very well - loved the diet, gravel, cedar, leather. Gorgeous Bordeaux. #1988 #Bordeaux #HautBrion — 7 years ago

Moderate power with secondary notes dominating the nose and palate. The red and black fruit is right on its deathbed. Interesting complexity made this wine enjoyable. #bordeaux #hautbrion #pessacleognan — 8 years ago

Château Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1964

This 1964 #hautbrion was Incredibly still young & vibrant but had all the traits I love of a top Pessac; sooty, gravel, pencil lead, minerals, soggy earth, red & black fruit.... I just could not stop sniffing it & the palate didn’t disappoint either ... but oh boy that nose was to die for 💗 & how it was still ruby red vs garnet was incredible 😍

1982, still young at opening and a bit of sour remains. Smell of oak and grass.
