Tasting Notes

Vinous – 92/100

The 2013 Haut-Brion offers light loam and forest floor scents, missing its usual fruit intensity as you would expect, though it presents pressed flower and dry tobacco with further aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. Cohesive with a little more body than La Mission, this has a finely-tuned, pure finish with clove and white pepper hints. This is persistent on the finish in the context of the season. Classy. Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On tasting. [Neal Martin, 08/08/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2036

Robert Parker – 92

The 2013 Haut Brion has perhaps a little more complexity on the nose compared to the 2013 La Mission Haut-Brion at the moment. There is more depth and plenty of attractive fruit: cranberry, wild strawberry, hickory and a scintilla of scorched earth that becomes quite peaty with time. It is well defined and shows impressive focus. The palate is very well balanced with tensile tannin, a keen thread of acidity, lively in the mouth with more weight and presence than La Mission, though perhaps without quite the same precision at the moment. It still cuts away just a little short on the finish, but this is a decent Haut-Brion that may pull ahead of its “sibling” with bottle age. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035

JancisRobinson.com – 16

Tasted blind. Deep garnet. Toasty oak nose. Firm, chewy and fresh and with the fruit to hold it together, just. (JH)  [27/01/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2033
