To me the most complex wine of the night offering a deep cerebral experience, with what I thought of as a berry bouquet garni was the 2000 Haut-Brion. The most contemplative, while also a deeply pleasurable wine, offered layers of classic Bordeaux notes of toast, coffee, currants, cassis, subtle & smokey campfire embers, cigar box...the list goes on and most of that was in the nose. The palate was texturally seamless, packed and stacked with structure that never got in the way, though you would notice it on the finish letting you know it was there. 2005 was locked up and unrelenting at first, the second go an hour later was more repenting but it was still not nudging much. A thoroughly excellent wine, but just not revealing much beyond the hints of its greatness. #hautbrion #pessacleognan #bordeaux #wine

Popped it 5 years too early. Stiff as fuck. BUT, a cacophony of mind-bending complexity unlike anything I have ever tried. Paired it with Terry Gilliam's "Zero Theorem". Actually, both are 5 years ahead of their time and play up the cerebral to the limit.

Incredibly mineral driven. Just open a couple decades to soon.
