Chateau Haut Brion 1996

Tasted the 1996 Haut Brion before but never as outstanding as this bottle. Bottles and our moods make for an always different experience. This time an absolutely excellent experience. This Haut-Brion is rich, with depth, it beats many other vintages like 1995 and 2001. Equal to the 1998 this time. Strawberry, with tantalizing depths of red fruit, a smorgasboard or summer fruit but with enough freshness to make it a classic beauty. A masculine base of remarkably beautiful tannins. Very Good length with lingering aftertaste of more than a minute. Very very nice. Drinking this makes you realize what a Premier Cru really is about.
