Château Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

Château Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is elegant, fine, racy, relatively powerful and offers a small freshness. It reveals notes of white fruit (apple, pear) and a touch of nectarine associated with slight notes of citrus, a discreet touch of pineapple (in the background) as well as a fine hint of oak and a discreet hint of honeysuckle. The palate is fruity, gourmand, elegant, fine, sleek, suave, round, relatively fat, relatively powerful and offers a good density, a good acidity as well as a beautiful and silky matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of nectarine, ripe citrus and a hint of exotic fruits (pineapple, quenette) combined with a touch of tangerine, a small touch of candied orange as well as a discreet touch of vanilla and oak. Good length.
