Château Haut-Brion 2017 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is elegant, fine, very slightly tight and offers a small juiciness, precision as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of pear, ripe white grapefruit and small notes of lemon associated with fine touches of lychee, zest, apple blossom as well as discreet hints of minerality racy / flint, a very discreet hint of Timut pepper (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of acacia / oak (in the background). The palate is fruity, elegant, harmonious, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful juiciness, an acidulous frame, deepness, a beautiful gourmandize, dynamism, a beautiful structure as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe / juicy lemon, ripe / juicy pink grapefruit and small notes of ripe / juicy vine peach combined with fine touches of ripe / juicy tangerine, kumquat as well as slight hints of crunchy / juicy apple, juicy quenette and discreet hints of flowers (white, lemon, almond). Good length and very beautiful persistence. There are slight toasted hints / almond on the persistence (bring gourmandise).
