Château Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan, 1er Grand Cru Classé

The nose is elegant and complex. It reveals notes of ripe black fruit combined with hints of red fruits as well as slight notes of coffee, vanilla, licorice, spice and oak. The mouth is perfectly structured, harmonious, elegant, round, fruity and reveals a small minerality, finesse and a beautiful creamy texture. In the mouth it expresses notes of black fruits (blackberries, fleshy plum) and strawberry associated with subtle oaky notes and a few slight notes of spices. The tannins are fine, elegant, well-made, rounded but currently young. Beautiful length and aftertaste.
