2001 Chateau Haut-Brion Bordeaux - 95 Pts!
Haut-Brion's 2001 which was bottled late (the end of September 2003) possesses an unmistakable nobility as well as a burgeoning complexity. Plum/purple to the rim this blend of 52% Merlot 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc is playing it close to the vest having closed down considerably after bottling. Nevertheless it reveals pure notes of sweet and sour cherries black currants licorice smoke and crushed stones. Medium-bodied with excellent purity firm tannin and an angular structured finish it requires 5-7 years of cellaring. RP Intense aromas of violets berries and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate with layers of supersilky tannins and a long long finish. Very classic in style. All in elegance and length. I like it better than the 2000. Best after 2009. 1000 cases imported. WS
