Cellar/Tasting Notes
Elegance is the one word that should be used to describe the 2006 Haut Brion. The aromas, initially reserved, opens up softly and slowly. Notes of minerals are followed by red berries, which segue into earthy notes dominated by fresh ground coffee beans. On the palate, the wine is silky and velvety complemented by suave tannins whose freshness carries them along to an unending length.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 96
"*A Top 100 Cellar Selection of 2009* A severe, austere wine that doesn't show its richness easily. The tannins are tight and firm and they dominate. Underneath is ripe fruit, the balance with tannins giving a foursquare, solid character. The wine is complex, spice playing with the fruit, some medicinal flavors and a definite stalky, tight structure. It obviously needs long-term aging. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
"The 2006 Haut-Brion performed even better from bottle than it did from barrel. Sixty-four percent of the production went into this wine, and while it displays the vintage's powerful tannins and structure, it possesses superb concentration, and the minerality/scorched earth notes of a great Haut-Brion. Medium to full-bodied, with perhaps not quite the fleshiness of the 2005 or 2000, it is built more along the lines of the 1998 and 1996. It is a brilliant effort displaying sensational purity, texture, and length that should be exceptionally long-lived."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 95
"Medium ruby-red. Inviting aromas of plum, warm stones, red licorice and menthol. Suave, gentle and elegantly styled; distinctly sweeter and lusher today than the La Mission, with even more mid-palate depth. Showing more red fruits today as well, with pungent minerality giving the wine lift and juiciness. Finishes with suave but substantial building tannins. Last year this wine was showing its spine while La Mission was more opulent; in bottle it's the other way around. "
