Château Haut-Brion, 2009

RRP £650

This is more discreet on the nose than its sister and immediate neighbour, La Mission Haut-Brion. In the mouth it is savoury and impressive. Everything is there in spadefuls, not least the fine yet imposing tannins, still buried deep underground, tightly packed and waiting for the right moment to surface. The wine is supreme and magisterial. But give it time to offer itself up more freely.
