Château Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

The 2000 Bahans Haut-Brion is fully mature, but I had indicated that back in 2003, giving it an anticipated maturity date of 2005-2016. Its smoky, soft berry fruit and notes of fresh porcini mushrooms intermixed with cigar tobacco and black currants are complex. This complexity is followed by a fleshy, elegant, silky wine...

3+ hour decant and it was just so velvety smooth. Still young, but what a beautiful wine.

Dark black fruit with aromas of tar to back and leather on the mouth good mid plate lots of acid black fruit. With four hours in the decanter can see it will one day be lovely but needs another ten years

I've never felt the 2000 vintage lived up to its billing and this is a perfect example. Good but not great. At 15 years, it should be more expressive and multidimensional. I'd like to check in five or ten years to see if it progresses from this point. I'm not so sure.

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

In full force of the funk. Behind it is some pretty fruit. Lay it down to weather the storm
