Haut Brion 2018
Haut Brion is without doubt one of the world's greatest wines and arguably the most consistent of all the First Growths. Their wines from top vintages are amongst the most sought after in the world.
"... It all comes together into a fascinating crescendo of intense crème de cassis, rose oil, wild blueberries and kirsch notes, giving way to quiet, persistent leitmotif scents of cinnamon stick, truffles and redcurrant jelly. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers all this and more, revealing tightly wound black fruit, red berry and exotic spice layers within a solid, wonderfully plush frame and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length and loads of earth and mineral sparks." - 100pts, Wine Advocate
