Bahans Haut Brion 1997
Tasting Notes Bahans Haut Brion 1997
The 1997 Bahans-Haut-Brion exhibits a dark ruby color, as well as a subtle mineral, tobacco, earthy, black plum and currant-scented nose. Light tannin is present in the finish, but this is an up-front, hedonistic wine to drink during its first 7-8 years of life. A severe selection was employed for the grand vin at Haut-Brion, with only 45% of the production making it into the final blend. Only 35% of the remaining production went into the second wine, Bahans-Haut-Brion.
