...offers an aromatic explosion that is unparalleled..currently rich, full-bodied, opulent, even flamboyant by Haut Brion’s standards. It is an incredible expression of a noble terroir in a top vintage...
...exotic, flamboyant and super-expressive. Dark fruit, leather, licorice and grilled herbs are all amped up.
Racy and refined, with firm, silky tannins and a long finish. Full-bodied. Mushrooms and ripe fruit on the palate.
Fabulous aromas of spicy cherries, minerals, tobacco and smoky oak. Saline entry, then intense, spicy fruit and excellent extract. Very firm and subtle, with outstanding clarity of flavor. Lovely ripe acids and a long, subtle aftertaste.
...A good expression of both Haut-Brion's delicacy and 1990's richness. Attractively sweet and long... Just lightly dusty tannins on the end.
