Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 97 Points: “A blend of 53% Merlot, 6.3% Cabernet Franc and 40.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Haut-Brion sashays gracefully out of the glass with fragrant notions of black raspberries, kirsch, dark chocolate, star anise and candied violets with a core of warm red and black currants and a touch of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with red and black fruit layers, superbly supported by firm, ripe, finely grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced.”
Jane Anson for Decanter 97 Points: “A hugely captivating wine, one of the contenders for red of the vintage. There's an incredible plush, dense texture to the fruit here, with just the slightest pulling back on the final section that suggests the damson, cassis and black cherry fruit is not at the full extent of ripeness seen in 2016 and 2015, but there is absolutely no question that this is a successful, rich and well-expressed wine. It's extremely powerful and well constructed, with great tannins and a succulence which grows through the palate. 3.73pH.”
René Gabriel 19/20 Points: “(53% Merlot, 6.3% Cabernet Franc, 40.7% Cabernet Sauvignon) Konzentriertes, komplexes, frisches Bouquet, Dörrpflaumen, Korinthen, Mahagoni, Feuerstein, Getreide. Dichtverwobener, eleganter, vielschichtiger, frischer Gaumen mit fein cremiger Struktur, dichter, vielfältiger, süsser Aromatik, samtener, dichter Frucht, viel feinem Tannin, sehr langer, frischer, duftiger Abgang mit vielen Rückaromen.”
James Suckling 98 Points: “This is extremely aromatic and perfumed with crushed-berry, flower, currant and orange-peel character. Full-bodied, very tight and focused with fabulous depth and density that brings you down through the wine. Deep and serious. Very classic wine that reminds me of top Haut-Brions of the mid-1980s. Try after 2025.”
Antonio Galloni,Vinous 96+ Points: “The 2017 Haut-Brion is rich and virile, even in a vintage where it has less power than is the norm. My impression is that the 2017 is going to lie dormant for many years before it awakens, but its pedigree is quite obvious. Black cherry, plum, gravel, smoke, licorice and dark spice all burst out of the glass. The 2017 is a powerful, vertical Haut-Brion endowed with a real feeling of gravitas and somber intensity. The long, substantial finish suggests readers can look forward to many years of fine drinking. ”
VertdeVin 98-99 Points: “The nose is elegant, fine, very slightly tight and offers a small juiciness, precision as well as a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of pear, ripe white grapefruit and small notes of lemon associated with fine touches of lychee, zest, apple blossom as well as discreet hints of minerality racy / flint, a very discreet hint of Timut pepper (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of acacia / oak (in the background). The palate is fruity, elegant, harmonious, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful juiciness, an acidulous frame, deepness, a beautiful gourmandize, dynamism, a beautiful structure as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe / juicy lemon, ripe / juicy pink grapefruit and small notes of ripe / juicy vine peach combined with fine touches of ripe / juicy tangerine, kumquat as well as slight hints of crunchy / juicy apple, juicy quenette and discreet hints of flowers (white, lemon, almond). Good length and very beautiful persistence. There are slight toasted hints / almond on the persistence (bring gourmandise).”
Jeff Leve 97 Points: “Ripe tannins and volume in all the right places, this wine tempts with verve and depth of flavor, length and complexity and gets up close and personal with the tannins. And in my overeducated and sometimes pompous opinion, the wine is going to require a minimum of 12-15 years of aging before it becomes civilized enough to drink. A blend of 53% Merlot, 40.7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4.4% Cabernet Franc with a the harvest taking place August 31 to September 29, the wine reached 14.25% alcohol with a pH of 3.73 and represents 45% of the Grand Vin.”
Matthew Jukes 19+/20 Points: “This is another heroic Haut-Brion and like its partner across Avenue Jean Jaurès it has a tannin structure and freshness which are uniquely appealing. There is more stern fruit here and it is straight-jacketed in strict tannins and bold brushstrokes of acidity. The flavour is a little reluctant to emerge and yet there is spice here and also both red and black fruit (whereas La Mission focussed more on the black side). There is also a lovely tender floral scent which hovers over the glass. It is a key to the fascinating top notes which will undoubtedly emerge given time. 2017 Haut-Brion will need a long while to slumber before it is ready to perform, so do not be in a hurry.”
