Shows interesting aromas of chocolate, meat and berry, with hints of fresh cèpe. Turns floral and aromatic. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a medium finish. Very balanced and pretty. Elegant and seductive. This is the last year of LTHB. (JS)
Ruby-red. Plum, black raspberry and cedary oak on the nose. Pure but a bit tightly wound, with lovely texture and uncompromising dryness to the dark raspberry and tobacco flavors. With aeration, this gained in depth and breadth and showed lovely sweetness, but there's very firm acidity here for the vintage. Built to age. Should make an excellent last vintage for this bottling.

The rich scent of new oak gives a French roast coffee flavor to this wine's tarry tannins. The fruit falls in a lighter, redder zone, like persimmon, while it still has the primary, purple grape-skin character of youth. A tense, earthy young wine, this should evolve well.
This wine is something of a collector’s item, since this is the last vintage it was made before integration of the vineyard into La Mission Haut-Brion. It’s a lively, ripe, cassis-flavored wine, with soft, rounded tannins and fresh acidity.
