Tasting notes

07/04/2010

(50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc; final blend represents 35% of the crop.) Fine black-red, really lovely, seductive small berry fruit, already satiny in texture on the palate with great precision of fruit, but also quite fleshy in a restrained sense, a wine of great breed and class that will show the earthy/taffeta style of Haut-Brion to perfection. Drink 2020-40. 19 points
