Château Haut Brion 2008

Pessac Léognan


Snel Overzicht

Vroeger lag Haut Brion, samen met La Mission Haut Brion en Les Carmes Haut Brion, ver buiten de stad Bordeaux. Maar dat is niet meer zo. De stad ligt nu rondom deze iconische akkers. Deze 2008 staat aan de start van z'n drinkraam, maar kan ook nog wel even, zeg tot in de jaren '50 van deze eeuw. Deze flessen zijn in januari 2022 vanuit de kelder in Bordeaux naar onze (top) kelder verhuisd. Betere flessen zijn niet te vinden.
  • Wijnsoort: rood
  • Flesmaat: fles (75 cl)
  • Verpakking: origineel kistje van 6 flessen


Jane Anson Decanter 97 – "I loved this vintage of Haut Brion en primeur and am so happy that it has more than lived up to expectations now that it is well into its second decade of life. The fruit remains layered and complex; with plump but measured damson, cassis, bilberry, softening ever so slightly around the edges but still maintaining a slate texture that keeps things just slowly inching forward through the palate. Rosemary, black olives and crushed mint leaf on the finish. Ruthless selection, with just 35% of production going into the first wine." (februari 2021)

Neal Martin Vinous 95+ – "The 2008 Haut Brion has a very perfumed and floral bouquet: ebullient raspberry coulis and crushed strawberry fruit, sage and a hint of black olive. It just builds momentum in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. It feels a little grainy in texture, centered upon gravelly black fruit laced with black olive and smoke. It felt more austere than I expected, the finish reserved and somehow "contained" and yet the aftertaste is extraordinarily long. Avoid opening bottles for now because this was always one of the standout wines of the vintage, but at 10 years old it might be going through a dumb phase." (februari 2018)

Chris Kissack Winedoctor 97 – "This feels dark and withdrawn, with a brooding character on the nose, showing black bean and black olive fruit, smoky and reluctantly expressed, and much less fragrant and floral than La Mission in the same vintage, tasted alongside. The palate, however, is a real tour de force, focusing exclusively on the dry, savoury and salty fruit of the vintage, redolent of salted black olives, black bean, liquorice and beef stock, with a savoury and peppery energy to it. A brilliantly fine exterior, yet within this velvet glove there is a wonderfully confident and ripe tannic structure that yet needs a decade or more to resolve. A supremely confident finish, with just a little chalky character to the tannins here. But otherwise, a superb wine." (februari 2018)
