Château HAUT-BRION 1er grand cru classé 2008 bottle 75cl

bottle 75cl: 525,83 €bottle 75cl

Haut-Brion is the most famous of all the Bordeaux growths, having twice been classified as 1er grand cru, in 1855 and again in 1959 (Graves classification). Haut-Brion is both the oldest of the Grands Crus, with more than five centuries (since 1509) behind it, and the most innovative, introducing stainless steel vats as early as 1960 and green harvesting as early as 1980.
Its particular situation within the Bordeaux agglomeration makes it the earliest Premier Cru on the left bank, a clear advantage in less mature vintages. For this reason, Haut-Brion's consistency is a benchmark for the whole of Bordeaux, with the intense bouquet of fresh earth, smoke and pine resin so characteristic of the appellation.
Fortunately, the unique silhouette of its bottle has disrupted the Asian market and has not triggered the same speculative interest there as it has for the other 1er grands crus classés. Haut-Brion is today without question the most qualitative and the least expensive of the premiers.

    In a denser and more opulent register than Haut-Brion, La Mission is a potential premier cru. Exceptional 2010 rated 19.5/20 by the Revue du Vin de France "A monumental wine, even superior in terms of balance to the spectacular 2009" and formidable 2017 rated 96/100 by M. Galloni (Vinous) "Effortless, graceful and wonderfully nuanced, this 2017 has simply everything for him. What a wine!".

    Rated 94/100 by Neal Martin after bottling « The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, very focused and refined with darker fruit compared to the nose. Traces of tar and cedar surface towards the classic finish that linger nicely, although Haut-Brion just has a tad more persistence and depth. Superb. » (February 2020)

    Rated 96/100 by Antonio Galloni after bottling « In 2017, La Mission plays very much in the red fruit and floral end of the spectrum. Effortless, gracious and wonderfully nuanced, the 2017 simply has it all. What a wine! » (March 2020)

    Rated 95/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin « La décantation lui fait prendre une note plus suave rappelant la framboise. Cette suavité se retrouve en bouche dans une stimulation très délicate où tout caresse en fondant et laisse une très grande place à l'arôme. Cette sensation n'est pas sans rappeler la dégustation des grands Bourgogne rouges. Grande finale subtile et ravissante. » (Feb. 2020)

    "The 2016 La Mission Haut-Brion was stunning from barrel, and now in bottle. It has a sublime bouquet of blackberries, briar and hints of dark chocolate and rose petals that gain intensity with aeration while maintaining ethereal delineation. It never steps on the accelerator too hard. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is still a veneer of new oak that will need to be assimilated over the coming years. This is a deep La Mission that caresses the mouth. Touches of graphite lingering on a finish that fans out gloriously. Is the 2016 up there with the 1955 or 1989? Nearly." Rated 99/100

    Neal Martin (vinous.com) – January 2019

    "The 2016 La Mission Haut-Brion is flat out gorgeous. Today, La Mission is incredibly primary, with stunning purity in its red/purplish berry fruit. Readers will have to cellar the 2016 for the better part of a decade at a minimum before the telltale aromatics of this fabled château start to blossom in bottle. I adore the 2016 for its gracious personality, fine tannin and remarkable freshness, not to mention that it is absolutely delicious and the kind of wine that is so suggestive of a very bright future."

    Re-tasted 10 years later by the Revue du Vin de France, it is rated 19/20 "this very intense wine, massive on the palate, is far from having said it all. It impresses by its attack, its fleshy mouth and the opulence of its very coated fruit".

    Rated 99/100 by the Revue du Vin de France « Moelleuse, la chair du vin reste paradoxalement tendue, serrée, et finit sa parade en bouche sur une impression de grâce longiligne. Le potentiel d’évolution de ce grand millésime est énorme. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 100/100 by En Magnum « En bouteille, je retrouve ce côté incroyable qui résume tout ce que j'aime dans un grand Bordeaux. La caresse, le velouté, la noblesse de texture et de tannins et cette grande personnalité absolument unique. » (Apr. 2020)

    In 2012, Haut-Brion bought and combined two grands crus classés (Tertre-Dauguay and L'Arrosée) on the slopes of Saint-Émilion (Côte Ausone), and put a foot in the right bank, called Quintus because it is their fifth property (after Haut-Brion, La Mission HB, Laville HB and Latour HB).

    Their first objective is to make fine, long wines, focusing on freshness and delicacy rather than power or density, more typical of the left bank than the right bank.

    Second objective: to shine in the next Saint-Emilion classifications (its immediate neighbours are Ausone, Belair-Monange, Angélus and Canon, all 1st classified grands crus).

    2017 vintage rated 94/100 by Antonio Galloni "Rich and dense on the palate, Quintus is a bold, hedonistically opulent Saint-Émilion in 2017. Soaring Franc overtones play off the Merlot nicely, adding both aromatic presence and a real feeling of saline intensity that comes through, especially on the finish". (March 2020)

    2017 vintage rated 94/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin "Caressant à l’attaque, le vin devient gras au milieu, ample, puis très fruité. Il se développe savoureux, sur un toucher noble, tout en évoluant puissant, avec beaucoup de présence et un éclat fruité sophistiqué". (Oct. 2020)

    2016 rated 94/100 by Neal Martin "The 2016 Quintus has a very noble bouquet with beautifully defined blackberry and briary fruit, wonderfully integrated oak and a genuine sense of focus and poise. This is a beautifully crafted Saint-Émilion and one of the best releases of Quintus to date". (Aug. 2020)
