A gorgeous bottle that is showing the wine's full potential and expression. Complex and layered, revealing a range of glorious flavors such as savory herbs, dried berries, aged tobacco and sweet spices. Long, persistent finish.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
 So, this is what a cigar smoking lounge smells like on a night when everyone seems to be enjoying their favorite Cuban cigar. Add to that, cherry pipe tobacco, burning leaves, currants, blackberries, leather, tar and scorched earth and you get an idea of the perfume, The palate is loaded with elegant, silky, fresh, spicy, sweet red fruits with a delicate edge. This was a very good bottle, though, I’ve had even better examples, as this wine can be majestic.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
 Supple and enveloping, the 1982 Haut-Brion is drinking brilliantly today, wafting from the glass with aromas of red berries and plums, tobacco leaf, cedar box, scorched earth, cigar smoke and walnuts. Medium to full-bodied, broad and sensual, it's fleshy and giving, with a rich core of fruit, melting tannins and a long, resonant finish. At age 40, this is the most charming of the 1982 first growths, yet despite its outgoing personality, it seems to gain in stature with every passing year.

A towering wine, with decidedly earthy, gamy flavors. Despite hints of burnt toast and a tough texture, the power and richness grow with every sip of this full, supple and generous wine.

 Beautifully rich, deep colour. Still ruby at core, with broad rim of orangy-red. Absolutely gorgeous nose; sumptuous, filled with warm autumnal berries, rich mulberry, brambles and a hint of damp woodland. There are nuances of cedar and tobacco, but a core of ripe, sweet cassis. The palate has elegance with a wonderful core of minerality giving a very clean impression. It doesn't have the weight of some of the other wines here, but has terrific purity and balance, a very composed wine with fine length. The acidity is cool and clean and is well integrated. Poised and beautifully proportioned without being flashy. Should drink well through two decades more.

 In the prime of life. Mid ruby. Sweet, round, fairly soft (all tannin spent) with the signature warm bricks and tobacco aromas. Smudgy with a hint of sweet cassis. Really very gorgeous.

Château Haut Brion
Château Haut Brion

It was in 1855 that Château Haut Brion was honored with the highest distinction of Médoc wines: Premier Cru Classé (First Growth). Château Haut Brion is the only non-Médoc domain to be included in the Médoc wine list, as well as the Graves wine classification as a Classified Growth!

Its soil is similar to elsewhere as a brother of Latour. Without being the most concentrated, Haut Brion is the most noble of wines from Pessac-Leognan and its longevity is unparalleled in the industry. The silky tannins are always exceptional. Chateau Haut-Brion is the oldest and yet the smallest of vineyards classified as Premiers Grands Crus in 1855 (Château Lafite-RothschildChâteau LatourChâteau MargauxChâteau Mouton RothschildChâteau Haut-Brion)

Although the vineyard has been active in the region since at least Roman times, the first mention of vineyards of Haut-Brion dates back only to 1423. In the early days, the wines were known by the name of the parishes where they came from. In the case of Haut-Brion, under the leadership of Pontac, the wine first bore the name of this noble and respectable family. Haut Brion was founded in 1525 by Jean de Pontac and since famous people have succeeded. The last of them, Clarence Douglas Dillon, was Minister of Finance of the United States under the Kennedy administration. As its reputation grew, the name of the estate came to replace that of its owners. The concept of Grand Cru is born! We find the first mention in the diary of Samuel Pepys, who wrote April 10, 1663: "I just tasted a French wine called Ho-Bryan (sic) which has the best and most special taste I've ever enountered."

Among the many great vintages of Château Haut Brion, the exceptional vintages are 1926, 1945, 1953, 1959, 1961, 1982, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2000.
