Tasting Notes and Scores

Drink 2008-2032
-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7

The dark plum/ruby-hued 2004 Haut-Brion exhibits a noble, discrete, smoky bouquet revealing notions of plum liqueur, black currants, sweet cherries, and subtle earth. In addition to its aromatic complexity, this medium-bodied effort reveals classic elegance and delicacy as well as sweet fruit in the mouth and a long finish. Give this streamlined, civilized wine 2-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 20-25 years. It is amazingly similar to Haut-Brion’s 1999.

It has been a few years since I last tasted the 2004 Haut-Brion. Now at 12 years of age, it retains its deep color. The bouquet is "pleasant" if not as complex as the 2004 Latour, yet it's possibly just biding its time as it gradually opens with black fruit, black olive, even a touch of mint that might dupe you into thinking Pauillac. The palate is medium-bodied and very harmonious, almost caressing thanks to the Merlot lending that velvety texture. The second half changes tack, the Cabernet nudging the Merlot off the stage and delivering a more structured, possibly foursquare finish that is linear and correct. It is an excellent wine for the vintage although it will always be overshadowed by the 2005 inter alia. Maybe more personality just needs to develop? Tasted September 2016. - The Wine Advocate 229, Feb 2017

Mature brick-edged dark red; sweet, refined, early bouquet, subtly gravelly, very nice already; supple, graceful, delicately tannin textured middleweight wine; a gentle, easy, flowing flavour, fresh, fragrant, mouthcoating and fine; not the fruit core appeal and juiciness of the La Mission, but with a greater aromatic complexity. Drinkable already, but real harmony and bouquet yet to come. Now – 2030+ [M Schuster March 2014]

Wonderful aromas of dried flowers, currant, berries and mineral. Full-bodied, yet reserved and refined. Lovely texture, with a pure silk feel. Seamless and beautiful. Great length. Even better than from barrel. James Suckling
