Château Haut-Brion 2006

2006 Pessac-Leognan, 1. Cru Classe, Bordeaux

The Chateau Haut-Brion vineyard was created in 1533, making it one of the oldest Bordeaux vineyards. The vineyard stretches over more than 51 hectares and is located in Pessac, on the Pessac-Leognan appellation. This 2006 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. 
The wine displays a very deep colour. The nose is discrete at first but then develops on mineral notes, followed by red berry and roasted coffee bean aromas. The 2006 Chateau Haut-Brion reveals incredible charm and complexity. The wine carries fresh tannins with an outstanding length.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Haut-Brion has a more ostentatious bouquet than the comparatively reserved La Mission: quite feisty blackberry, briary, kirsch and red plum scents, hints of leather and sage tucked just underneath. This is a bouquet determined to make an impression! The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, a gentle build to a concentrated, earthy, truffle-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. This seems to have the upper-hand over the La Mission and probably has a longer future. A thoroughbred from Jean-Philippe Delmas and his team. Tasted January 2016.
