    A racy and intense Classified First Growth from Graves

    Chateau Haut-Brion red 2016 is one of the 1st Classified Growth in Graves. The 2016 vintage experienced exceptional weather conditions. The magnificent terroir of Chateau Haut-Brion, protected the vines from the severe droughts. 2016 is a blend of 56% Merlot, 6.5% Cabernet Franc and 37.5% of Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were harvested from. September 19th to October 13th. 2016 has more Merlot than the 2015 vintage.

    Chateau Haut-Brion red 2016 has a bright violet, red color with garnet reflections. It has a complex aromatic structure. The charm of this vintage presents striking scents of violets and red and black fruits. In the mouth, this wine is juicy, dense and ample. From the attack to the finish, the acidity is well-defined. The wine has a beautiful weight and the tannins are enveloping and creamy. The finish is long and beautifully-balanced. Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful bottles of Haut-Brion in the legacy of 2010 as a remarkable vintage

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2016 Haut-Brion is blended of 56% Merlot, 37.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6.5% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the nose is at once profound and arresting, offering drop-dead gorgeous Morello cherries, lilacs and red rose scents with a core of Black Forest cake, warm blackcurrants and blueberry preserves plus wafts of sandalwood and underbrush. Medium-bodied, the elegantly crafted palate is completely packed with intense floral, mineral and cassis-laced flavors with a firm frame of very finely pixelated tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and achingly stunning.
