Haut-Brion a Great among the Great and the red wine that modestly, we place everything at the top of the hierarchy. Its first Cru ranking in 1855, reserved for Médoc wines only, proves that more than a century ago, it was already forcing the admiration of everyone, up to and including its toughest opponents. A good Haut-Brion is always deep, velvety, unctuous, with a delicate bouquet of violet and wild raspberry; it is full, balanced, harmonious and it exudes a haunting charm. To report a wonderful White Brion which, scandalously to our liking, is not classified. Patrice Dard - All about wine.
