Description

A bottle of 1998 Château Haut-Brion from the Pessac-Léognan appellation in Bordeaux.

Château Haut-Brion is rated as a First Growth under the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, and was the first producer to be mentioned by name in English literature, featuring in Samuel Pepys' diaries.

'Still incredibly youthful and sporting a lot of fruit, the deep garnet-brick colored 1998 Haut-Brion sashays out of the glass with flamboyant red and black fruits, followed by a train of cassis, blueberry pie and chocolate box notions plus accents of iron ore, dried lavender and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is wonderfully rich and decadently seductive in its generosity of fruit and velvety texture, offering seamless freshness and finishing with epic length and compelling minerality. Oh so delicious right now, with careful cellaring it should continue to excite through 2045 and beyond. 99/100' Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, May 2018
