Bahans Haut Brion 2005
Tasting Notes Bahans Haut Brion 2005
The second wine, the 2005 Bahans-Haut-Brion, is a fruit-forward, deliciously soft, round, stylish offering possessing hints of figs, plums, black currants, cherries, and minerals. Soft, with supple tannin, it is ideal for drinking over the next 12-15 years. By the way, in 2007, this cuvee's name will be changed to Le Clarence de Haut-Brion.
Tasted single blind at Southwold. This was not showing well as the nose lacks a little depth: plum, raspberry, cedar and chalk dust. Ephemeral? The palate is very sweet and rather cloying. A perplexing showing from a wine that showed so well in barrel. Tasted January 2009.
