2005 Pessac-Leognan, 1. Cru Classe, Bordeaux

The Château Haut-Brion vineyard is located on the Pessac-Leognan appellation. It stretches over 51 hectares among which 48 hectares are planted with red grape-varieties. This vintage 2005 is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 

The wine reveals an almost black, dense colour. The nose gives off a rather outstanding aromatic intensity in which the complexity that characterises the Chateau Haut-Brion can be found. Indeed, empyreumatic, Havana cigar and roasted coffee bean notes are revealed. The fresh fruit is also part of the whole with redcurrant and cherry hints. On the palate, the 2005 Chateau Haut-Brion offers a dense, long and creamy attack. Strong and fresh, the palate is characterised by a certain harmony. The wine carries an incredible aromatic persistence. This 2005 Pessac-Leognan is one of the greatest successes of the estate.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The mineral-laced 2005 Haut Brion (56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc) is exquisite. With its elegance and finesse, it is not as powerful as La Mission, but the nobility and complexity of the aromatics, incredible fragrance (subtle smoke and blue, red, and black fruits) that persists in the glass, full-bodied mouthfeel (though very light and delicate on its feet), and incredible length characterize this great Haut-Brion. It is just starting to drink well, and should continue to do so for at least another three decades. It is a tour de force in winemaking, but only 9,000 cases were produced.
