Tasting Note RP 92/100 A brilliant effort, the 2007 Haut-Brion offers up aromas of crushed rocks, graphite, plum sauce, raspberries, and black cherries. The aromatics are truly complex for a three year-old wine. While the wine does not possess the fat and succulence of its nearby neighbor, La Mission Haut-Brion, its elegance, finesse, and nobility are apparent. Medium-bodied, rich, and intense with stunning aromatics, it can be drunk now or cellared for 15 years. WS 91/100 There's beautiful sweetness of fruit on the nose, with floral and ripe plum undertones. Very aromatic and subtle. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicate fruit finish. Refined. Best after 2013. NM 94/100 The Haut-Brion 2007 displays appealing tertiary aromas on the nose with very fine definition: graphite, dried herbs and a faint touch of mint. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of pepper on the entry, supple tannins, good grip in the mouth that leads to a backward, tannic, allspice tinged finish. Very harmonious from start to finish, this is a class act. Re-tasted at the property with consistent notes. Tasted September 2011.
