Chateau HAUT-BRION Pessac-Leognan 2019
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Tasting notes: Superb deep purple red colour. The first nose is intense and subtle at the same time. The fruitiness is ripe and the agitation reveals the aromatic complexity of this wine. The wine has an incredible attack of sweetness and delicacy. The tannins are tight without harshness, subtle and bewitching. The finish is long and fragrant.
About the winery:
The first authentic Bordeaux wine chateau is located on a terroir used for wine growing since the first century Gallo-Roman Period. The first Bordeaux wine named after its terroir rather than its owner, Chateau Haut-Brion was the world's first luxury brand in 1521. Thanks to its long history as one of Bordeaux's most prestigious wines, the estate has left its mark on the region for centuries.
