Bahans Haut Brion 1999
Tasting Notes Bahans Haut Brion 1999
More elegant than Chapelle but without the depth. Nose is closed. Good firm grip on the palate with cherry, liquorish and cranberry notes. A charming wine with breeding. Tasted March 2000.
The black cherry, plum, and mineral-scented 1999 Bahans Haut Brion was somewhat closed aromatically when I tasted it. The wine has medium body, excellent purity, good texture, and firm tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2015.
