TASTING NOTES

"Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Haut Brion has a perfumed bouquet with abundant red fruit, sage, sandalwood and black olive scents that just seem to soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, beautifully judged acidity and a gentle build in the mouth towards the savory/meaty finish. There is class interwoven into this Haut Brion from start to finish, and the persistence is very impressive. This is just reaching its drinking plateau. Tasted February 2017." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #231

"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." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"A brilliant effort, the 2007 Haut-Brion offers up aromas of crushed rocks, graphite, plum sauce, raspberries, and black cherries. The aromatics are truly complex for a three year-old wine. While the wine does not possess the fat and succulence of its nearby neighbor, La Mission Haut-Brion, its elegance, finesse, and nobility are apparent. Medium-bodied, rich, and intense with stunning aromatics, it can be drunk now or cellared for 15 years." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #188

"There's beautiful sweetness of fruit on the nose, with floral and ripe plum undertones. Very aromatic and subtle. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicate fruit finish. Refined. Best after 2013. 8,750 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Very impressive depth of crimson. My first smell of this wine reminded me of what had been missing in my two days of Bordeaux tasting up to then: sheer Bordeaux class! Nuances, top notes and bottom notes. Some spice, a hint of top quality oak, lots of Haut-Brion minerality. Lovely spread across the palate - very supple - even in this wine no great tannic charge. All the thrill is up front. On the finish it is neat but not lingering and the acidity just peeks out above the very fine tannins. Very sensitively made, possibly the best red bordeaux 2007 of all, but still definitely a 2007! I think that next to, say, a more complete vintage it would be wanting, which is why I have not given it a higher score. Not much volume but what there is has been beautifully handled."

"Deep ruby at the core, with narrow soft rim. Gorgeously fragrant – still with the sweetness of red fruit but also spice and light leafiness, wood spice. Mature aromas with fine fruit underneath. A lovely sweetness that seduces. Mellow, supple and rounded on the palate with wonderful persistence and overall remarkably juicy. Great finesse and very seductive."
