Château Haut Brion, Ch. Haut Brion, 1992
12 x 0.750L
Original wooden case
89 / 100 Robert Parker This wine is an immensely successful effort for the vintage, with elegance, sweetness, and a medium plum/garnet color already beginning to show some lightening at the edge. It has developed quickly, although the wine has surprising fruit and personality for such a dreadful vintage. The wine shows good cedary, spice box, cigar, and tobacco notes intermixed with minerals, sweet plum, and cherry. The finish is a bit short and attenuated, but the aromatics, attack, and mid-palate are delicious. Bordeaux Book, 4th Edition Jan 2003
88 / 100 Wine Spectator Has less richness than the 1993, showing lovely berry and black cherry flavors that shine through a layer of grainy tannins. http://www.winespectator.com/wine/detail/source/search/not..
