Chateau Haut Brion
Graves district, while elected in the Médoc rating level 1 exceptional wine! Five major Chateau in oldest, most small Chateau!
Chateau in the field, France 5 major Chateau in a most popular!
Was given the privilege of level 1, to a rating of the 1855 Médoc was too famous from the time, drawn from graves district exceptional historic Chateau Haut Brion.
Is it fame, Haut Brion was the momentum was already spread all over Europe.
Haut-Brion was born in 1550; The slag off methods, such as 'village (complementary sake), for the first time incorporate technology revolution, ventured into the British market. Tavern 1666, London is strictly Haut-Brion, and this wine was popular.
Then, Haut-Brion is the Savior of France was defeated in the Napoleonic wars. France had been forced into the crisis that the collapse of the country's Foreign Minister Talleyrand at the Congress of Vienna of 1814, determining the treatment of the defeated country, day and night, to international representative barreled sumptuous dishes and Haut-Brion.
It is managed to survive this down and international representatives also without France loses in the defeated countries and territorial hardly. Haut Brion say exactly what "Savior of France" reputation is quickly spread throughout Europe. It is of course also as special provisions have been made to the MEDOC rating level 1.
Never light, while Haut-Brion has five major Chateau in most "elegant", "fragrance," reputed to be "lighter" said "diplomatic", but it is not. It is a harmonious, graves district seems to be due to high percentage of Merlot compared to four other MEDOC wine astringent less softness and scent and taste, very approachable wines.
It in addition, endure 30-year maturity, and have excellent condensation of drinkable from among the young is good, despite the slow sleep and more smooth on the tongue with the weight, five large Chateau in "most swallowed long palate" least said.
Superb drink you can enjoy the flavor without interfering with the rich fragrance of rare shells of tannins, complex and elegant flavor and mellow, rich, Haut-Brion. Move the hearts of many and touched its flavor, history, or even will be you can see that the reason has changed. Haut Brion once saved the country of France is the special work best on still socialize with me, 1 book.
Haut-Brion in Pessac suburban commercial district that's only first class Chateau owned by a United States person. When Dillon family bought in 1935, Haut-Brion, Chateau, Château and cellars into large sums of money were in very poor condition. Currently, this beautiful place was exemplary Chateau graves.
Haut-Brion wine making maintains a perceptive and handsome Jean-Delmas (most talented administrator in the world of wine per person). Haut-Brion is also then Bordeaux wine Ageing in new oak barrels (up to 30 months) long term where, alongside the clinet in Pomerol, one of the slowest time to bottling the wine Chateau.
Haut-Brion wine styles underwent a change. From the 1950's early 1960's through the darned in dirt-flavored, even sweet wines, from 1966, during the 1974 lighter, skinny, feel free to drink, some lacked depth and richness change simple style claret, expect the first luxury Chateau. Is this intentional or or or just simply had a little slump, still will not find them. Staff at Haut-Brion is impatient, and be sensitive to such criticism. Back of earthy richness from the 1975 vintage, were equipped with ago 1966 again, and condensed flavors. Today, diverting Haut-Brion is suitable for the position of first class chateau wines.
Of coincidence I don't know, but quality of Haut-Brion from 1966 through 1974 period began to recover in 1975, Joan daughter of Douglas Dion became the CEO of this company was. After Crown Prince Charles of Luxembourg's first husband died, she remarried and mushy of 1978. And increased the amount of grapes as well as this, will go to the burn-Haut-Brion, it improves the quality of Haut-Brion is not questionable. All rights, Jean Delmas, to operate this Château was given. I will admit people of all Bordeaux he in France also knowledgeable and talented wine maker, and is the one of the administrators. No phenomenal research concentrated on clone selection, and latest technology in France goes to his right. In the 1980s and rich harvest, Delmas is harvest limited pruning bunches of grapes, just like Christian Moueix of Chateau Petrus in Pomerol in in. No doubt in 1989 with condensation taste better this way and phenomenal quality is born. Seems that this wine was Haut-Brion in the early stages in 1959 and 1961, since those most worthy of praise.
Interesting is the fact that often give the impression of wine in a blind tasting, Haut-Brion among the first luxury Chateau most diplomatic and light. Actually, this wine is light, not, differ from the MEDOC oak character was simply plump well, more tannic wines and wines more in shift Merlot made in the dominant, right bank and it's simply. Despite being premature in the best vintages, this wine is 30 years or longer period is better than any first class Chateau of other wine drinking continue maturing, we have.
To improve the qualitative level of the Haut-Brion since 1978, along with the improved quality of the second label in Baen-Haut-Brion. This is speaking of second wines are now the best in the Bordeaux second wine, which surpassed it in some vintages, one of the renowned Chateau Latour Les fall de Latour as in.
Are considered still a Haut-Brion white wine the best wine in the graves region. But never classified for a very small amount of production, at the request of the owner. However, under the guidance of Jean Delmas to pursue the white Montrachet phenomenal texture and plump graves making white wine is quite strong and. In 1994, such as recently as 1985 and 1989 vintage, totally amazing shows.
Add my personal thoughts, and 30 years in results over intensively as possible many Bordeaux wine tasting, tasting my only general changes are I for Haut-Brion, increasingly deep affection came hold. As older properties of minerals, such as dowries at this wine, cigar box, sweet black currant is my age, also if Jean Delmas so I will say that I be smarter, more attractive feel.
