Critical Acclaim

ST93 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar May/Jun 1998

"Very good deep red-ruby. Sweet, highly expressive aromas of redcurrant, hot stones, roasted plum, woodsmoke and tobacco. Fuller and more textured in the middle palate, with a chewy, tactile mouth feel that suggests strong extract and a wonderfully pliant texture. A firm mineral underpinning and sound acids frame the fruit. Expansive and seductively sweet in the mouth. Finishes very long and ripe, with thoroughly civilized tannins." (93 pts.)

RP96 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 23rd Feb 1998

"This wine has been brilliant on every occasion I have tasted it. More accessible and forward than the 1996, it possesses a saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a beautiful, knock-out set of aromatics, consisting of black fruits, vanillin, spice, and wood-fire smoke. Multidimensional and rich, with layers of ripe fruit, and beautifully integrated tannin and acidity, this medium to full-bodied wine is a graceful, seamless, exceptional Haut-Brion that should drink surprisingly well young. Anticipated maturity: 2002–2030." (96 pts.)

WS91 Wine & Spirits February 1, 1999

"Haut-Brion leads off at the top of the vintage: A sensational color, a glamorous aroma, a huge wine in the mouth. Its so luscious at its core, then so firmly structured that the finish is jarring. This wine shows all the breed you would expect, then it seems to dry up in the end. The tannins are like chewing on nails — not a bad thing for a young Bordeaux of this stature. But I searched for some indication of freshness in the finish, a quality that lends me comfort when a wine needs as much cellaring as this ’95. And I came up with dry rocks rather than traces of fresh fruit. It’s built for the long term, and if you trust the center of the wine it should make it." (91 pts.)

WE96 Wine Enthusiast 12/15/1998

"A wine of complexity and harmony rather than power, Haut-Brion is showing tobacco, cedar and leather aromas melded with some fairly serious black fruit. It resembles the superb 1985 at a similar stage, suggesting this has a good ten years before it peaks. And it will be lovely for 20 years thereafter." (96 pts.)

SP94 Wine Spectator Jan 31, 1998

"A splendid Haut-Brion with wonderful elegance. Refines tannins. Dark-colored, with beautiful ripe berry, cherry and very smoky nuances. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, plush texture on the finish. Best after 2001." (94 pts.)

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is known the world over for its exceptional wines, particularly red blends made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, among others. These Cabernets aren't typically the full-bodied Cabs you get from California, but rather medium-bodied wines that emanate elegance and sophistication.

You'll also find some refreshing Bordeaux whites and, of course, Bordeaux's famous dessert wine, Sauternes.

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
