2017 Château Haut-Brion, 1er Cru Pessac-Léognan

Haut-Brion is the star of Pessac in 2017. Deep and complex on the nose, elegant yet powerful on the palate. There's great freshness and impressive tannic structure around the fresh dark fruits.

TASTING NOTES

A tight and focused red with dark-berry, chocolate and hazelnut character. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a linear and fine finish. Very refined. Elegant and balanced.
