Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 100 Points: “The 2018 Haut-Brion is composed of 49.4% Merlot, 38.7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11.9% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, the wine needs a lot of swirling before it begins to release a whole complex melody of notes, one at a time to begin: tilled earth, followed by pronounced licorice, then crushed rocks, then the preserved plums. Eventually, it all comes together into a fascinating crescendo of intense crème de cassis, rose oil, wild blueberries and kirsch notes, giving way to quiet, persistent leitmotif scents of cinnamon stick, truffles and redcurrant jelly. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers all this and more, revealing tightly wound black fruit, red berry and exotic spice layers within a solid, wonderfully plush frame and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length and loads of earth and mineral sparks. This is a profound, highly intellectual, multilayered baby, which will require a good 7-8 years to begin to sing its incredible song, then should cellar a further 40 years at least. By way of reference, think 1989 with more restraint and even greater purity.”

Rene Gabriel’s Bordeaux Total – Andre Kunz 20 Points: “Kunz Fassprobe 19: (49.4% Merlot, 11.9% Cabernet Franc, 38.7% Cabernet Sauvignon) Tiefgründiges, komplexes, elegantes, verschlossenes, frisches Bouquet, Dörrpflaumen, Tabak, Graphit, Korinthen, Minze, fein Lakritze. Fein konzentrierter, vielschichtiger, dichtverwobener Gaumen mit dichter, super Aromatik, fein muskulöser, kraftvoller, eleganter Struktur, sehr viel feinem Tannin, sehr langer, dichter, aromatischer Abgang mit vielen Rückaromen.”

Jeff Leve 100 Points: “Opulent, powerful, full-bodied, dense and intense, this incredibly rich wine offers mouth-coating layers of ripe, lush, smoke and tobacco infused dark red and black fruits. What makes this wine great is that with all its power, you also find balance, elegance, harmony and layers of complexity. The expansive finish, with its ripe fruits, tobacco leaf, smoke, barbecue and oceanic minerality holds you captive for over 60 seconds! This will age for at least 3-4 decades with ease. The wine blends 56% Merlot, 37.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6.5% Cabernet Franc, 14.6 ABV.”
