Haut Brion 1985
Tasting Notes and Scores
A gloriously seductive, classic Haut Brion showing the most savory side of this elegant, finesse-styled wine, the 1985 Haut Brion has reached its plateau of full maturity. The colour is a deep ruby/garnet with some lightening at the edge. A very complex nose of cedar, dried herbs, smoke, creosote, and black cherries, plums and currants jumps from the glass. In the mouth, it is round, concentrated, medium to full bodied, with a velvety texture and beautifully integrated alcohol, acidity and tannin. A beauty! Anticipated maturity: now-2012.
