2009 Pessac-Leognan 1er Cru Classe

Chateau Haut-Brion is Bordeaux oldest Grands Crus, with a wine making history dating back to the 5th century. The 2015 release is a blend of Merlot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc.

The vintage purple-red hue suggests density, though aeration reveals great maturity with deep and warm aromas. This Pessac-Leognan offers broad palate in the beginning which evolves into full-body from the mid-palate, all the way to the finish. The creamy concentration is relatively thick, while freshness creates superb balance with the vintage strength. Tannins show maturity with a structure reminiscent of 1990 and 1989: undoubtedly the most beautiful vintage ever released by Chateau Haut-Brion.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
What a blockbuster effort! Atypically powerful, one day, the 2009 Haut-Brion may be considered to be the 21st century version of the 1959. It is an extraordinarily complex, concentrated effort made from a blend of 46% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc with the highest alcohol ever achieved at this estate, 14.3%. Even richer than the perfect 1989, with similar technical numbers although slightly higher extract and alcohol, it offers up a sensational perfume of subtle burning embers, unsmoked cigar tobacco, charcoal, black raspberries, wet gravel, plums, figs and blueberries. There is so much going on in the aromatics that one almost hesitates to stop smelling it. However, when it hits the palate, it is hardly a letdown. This unctuously textured, full-bodied 2009 possesses low acidity along with stunning extract and remarkable clarity for a wine with a pH close to 4.0. The good news is that there are 10,500 cases of the 2009, one of the most compelling examples of Haut-Brion ever made. It requires a decade of cellaring and should last a half century or more. Readers who have loved the complexity of Haut-Brion should be prepared for a bigger, richer, more massive wine, but one that does not lose any of its prodigious aromatic attractions.
