Even better, and clearly the best wine made in the Haut-Brion stable in 2003 (the last vintage of the great Jean-Bernard Delmas as administrator), the 2003 Haut-Brion is a blend of 58% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc that hit 13% natural alcohol, which seemed high at the time, but given more recent vintages is modest. Dark ruby/plum in color, with no amber or orange at the edge, the wine exhibits an abundance of roasted herbs, hot rocks, black currants, plum, and balsamic notes. Quite rich, medium to full-bodied and more complete, with sweeter tannins than La Mission Haut-Brion, this full-bodied Haut-Brion has hit full maturity, where it should stay for at least a decade. Bravo! Drink: 2014 - 2024.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s “10-Year On” tasting in London. Served from magnum, the Haut-Brion ’03 offers an attractive nose of briary, blackberry, sous-bois and black olive that is well defined and shows a little more gumption than the La Mission. The palate is medium-bodied with a chewy entry, plenty of fresh red berries infused with graphite and cloves. But is seems rather monotonous towards the finish and does not possess the complexity of the La Mission. Tasted March 2013.
