Pessac-Leognan, First Growth. 

52.3% Merlot, 38.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 9.1% Cabernet Franc.

The oldest of the Bordeaux Grands Crus, the Château Haut-Brion benefits from a rich heritage built over five centuries of history. A reference among the great wines of Pessac-Léognan and located in the heart of the Pessac agglomeration, Château Haut-Brion has an exceptional terroir on soils composed of multicoloured gravels, producing sumptuous, elegant, precise wines with incredible consistency from one vintage to another.

Lisa-Perrotti Brown - The Wine Independent: 98-100/100
A blend of 52.3% Merlot, 38.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 9.1% Cabernet Franc, the 2023 Haut-Brion has a pH of 3.7 and a deep garnet-purple color. It is quite closed to begin, needing a lot of patient swirling to coax out notes of plum preserves, black cherry compote, and wild blueberries, leading to perfumed hints of peonies, crushed stones, rose bud tea, and licorice, with a touch of wood smoke. The medium to full- bodied palate delivers black and blue fruit layers that shimmy and swirl in the mouth with jaw-dropping energy, accented by mineral and exotic spice notes and supported with a firm backbone and plush, plush tannins, finishing with a breathtaking firework display. Very clever wine!

Jane Anson: 98-100/100

This is an exceptional Haut-Brion, offering juice and elegant balance alongside classically structured layers, generous but restrained, sense of architecture and building blocks of a truly great Left Bank wine. Rippling with sinewy muscles, juicy and controlled, packed with cocoa bean, espresso, liouqorice root, but none of these flavours dominate, knitted together, with a vertical lift. 100% new oak, Jean-Philippe Delmas director, Jean-Philippe Masclef technical director, no outside consultant.
