Château Haut Brion 1996
Pessac-Léognan (Graves), 1er Cru Classé
Level into the neck
In 2013, a super, smoky, peaty nose that is just so generous and opulent. Lots of blackcurrant in there with some liquorice too. So youthful and fresh, together with the richness. Big structure and a keeper although it has that alluring Haut Brion softness. Long finish. A superb wine. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
