Chateau Haut Brion 2011 Bordeaux 1er Grand Cru Class̩ 95Pts WA

96 Points by James Suckling:

Although grapes are thought to have been grown on the property since Roman times, the earliest document indicating cultivation of a parcel of land dates from 1423. The property was bought by Jean de Ségur in 1509, and in 1525 was owned by Admiral Philippe de Chabot.
The estate Château Haut-Brion dates back to April 1525 when Jean de Pontac married Jeanne de Bellon, the daughter of the mayor of Libourne and seigneur of Hault-Brion, who brought to him in her dowry the land. In 1533 bought the title to the domain of Haut-Brion, while construction of the château was begun in 1549. 750 ML

Description

Details

Beautiful deep red color. Intense nose of very ripe black fruit with hints of cocoa beans. With aeration, complexity, smoky, licorice aromas so typical of Haut-Brion leap out of the glass. The first impression on the palate is very elegant. The wine then quickly builds up power, but not at the expense of smoothness, with rich tannin that blossoms into a beautiful long aftertaste with a great deal of flavor.
