Château Haut-Brion 2018 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers finesse, complexity, a small tension, deepness, a small intensity, a beautiful precision as well as a beautiful juicy and fleshy fruit. It reveals notes of ripe lemon, fleshy/juicy vine peach and small notes of ripe citrus associated with fine touches of quenette, white flowers, a discreet hint of lime zests as well as very discreet hints of almond and toasted. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers minerality, a juicy/mineral frame, fat, suavity, a finely unctuous material, freshness, richness, a beautiful precision, a beautiful finesse of the grain as well as a beautiful aromatic definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/ripe apple, ripe/fleshy citrus (lemon, pink grapefruit) and small notes of William pear associated with fine touches of quenette, ripe/juicy mandarine, a very discreet hint of flowers as well as discreet hints of exotic fruits, racy minerality and toasted. Good length. The finish is acidulous.
