Château Haut-Brion 2020 – Pessac-Léognan, Grand Cru Classé 

On the nose, it is full of opulence with a perfect blend of power, finesse, and delicacy, a captivating side, a nice finesse in the texture and a stretched side. It reveals notes of wild raspberry, wild boysenberry and with discreet notes of madagascar pepper associated with touches of violet, pulpy blueberries, green cardamom, beautiful texture as well as fine hints of vanilla, spices, cinnamon and a very discreet hint of orange zest. On the palate, fruity, opulent but with precision / finesse, juiciness, a richness balanced by smoothness, freshness, a nice minerality as well as a nice definition of fattiness, a certain straightforwardness in elegance, beautiful energy, a concentration that is perfectly balanced, depth. The wine expresses notes of bright wild cassis, black plum and more slightly pulpy raspberry associated with touches of violet, lily, saffron, chocolate / mocha as well as hints of pulpy blueberries / juicy, tangy wild strawberry, hints of green cardamom, camphor, toast, roasted hazelnut and a subtle hint of vanilla. The tannins are elegant, precise and polished. A discreet chew feel on the finish / persistence. Good length.
