There is nothing better than popping open a Haut Brion.
"I rarely get the opportunity to taste First Growth Bordeaux as the prices have escalated dramatically... but a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to do this 3 times in a week.

The 2006 was open during the Wine Spectator's Grand Gala Wine Tasting, The 2007 at a private lunch with General Manager Jean-Philippe Delmas and the 1998 with a generous customer who proudly also opened a 1997 Dominus and a 1997 Quilceda Creek Cabernet.

Of the three vintages I sampled... I can confidently say that the 2007 Haut Brion is the best to drink now and over the next decade.

The 2007 Chateau Haut Brion has a Gorgeous depth of character... Deep and rustic with layers of complexity seldom found in wine. An Explosive aroma you want to keep smelling for hours. Tasting it, it is full bodied, dense, rich and super long on the finish... so much going on in perfect harmony and balance. Every part of the tongue is satisfied!

Haut Brion has over 5 centuries of experience making arguably the best and most collected wines in the world. They are "The" oldest of the Bordeaux classed-growths dating back to 1525! The inventor of a new style of wine in the seventeenth century. The world's first luxury brand.

Whenever Chateau Haut Brion is mentioned, one quickly runs out of superlatives.

This wine is the embodiment of five centuries of tradition and plays a pivotal role in the worldwide history of wine.

The Press...


94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"A serious wine, filled with firm tannins, spiced with wood, and layered with bitter coffee as well as fruit. It certainly has power, the structure ready for long aging, firmly anchored in the dense character of this wine. It is a medium aging wine, 5–10 years."

94 Points - International Wine Cellar
"Bright ruby-red. Pure but youthfully inexpressive nose hints at raspberry and tobacco after extended aeration. Sweet, suave and pliant, with a silky texture perked up by minerality and lifted by a spicy component. Really lovely consistent ripeness here, showing neither roasted nor green qualities. Took on a more floral character with air. This superbly elegant wine really saturates the palate and lingers. Tannins are fine and sweet."

Crack open some Haut Brion… it’s addictive.
