Château La Tour Haut-Brion

Situated on a hilltop, the lands of Château La Tour Haut-Brion (near La Mission) have a gravelly soil, very poor in sand and in clay. It has been noted over the years that the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal is particularly well adapted to this land. The wines of La Tour are measurably different from those of La Mission.

Château La Tour Haut-Brion has the same type of bouquet as Haut-Brion, even more smoky tasting. Perhaps less complex in the aeration, it is as elegant as Haut-Brion.

La Tour Haut-Brion is characterized by an elegant bouquet of red berries followed by a harmonious, structured balance of sensation in the mouth.

In the most recent vintages, its body and its mildness put La Tour Haut-Brion at the top of the other grand crus classés of Graves.

 

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 96 points
"Today, the fruit from this vineyard has been incorporated into the second wine of La Mission-Haut-Brion, so I hope readers do not forget how great many vintages of La Tour-Haut-Brion were. The superb 1982 ranks alongside their great 1949, 1955, 1959, 1961, and 1975. No wine since this 1982 ever achieved this level of quality. Its inky/purple hue is followed by classic aromas of scorched earth, plums, cassis, charcoal, and truffles, powerful, full-bodied flavors, superb concentration, and a boatload of tannin. The wine is so complex aromatically, and the attack is so impressive that I can’t resist drinking it. However, it should be even better in 5-8 years, and should last for another three decades. Release price: ($150.00/case)" 2009
