CHÂTEAU HAUT-BRION 1990 (3) 98 WA


CHÂTEAU HAUT-BRION 1990 PESSAC-LÉOGNAN. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ 1990: IN TERMS OF THE BRILLIANT COMPLEXITY AND NOBILITY OF THE AROMATICS, SCORCHED EARTH, BLACK CURRANTS, PLUMS, CHARCOAL, CEDAR, AND SPICES, THE 1990 OFFERS AN AROMATIC EXPLOSION THAT IS UNPARALLELED. IT IS ALWAYS FASCINATING TO TASTE THIS WINE NEXT TO THE 1989, WHICH IS A MONUMENTAL EFFORT, BUT MUCH MORE BACKWARD AND DENSER, WITHOUT THE AROMATIC COMPLEXITY OF THE 1990. THE 1990 PUT ON WEIGHT AFTER BOTTLING, AND IS CURRENTLY RICH, FULL-BODIED, OPULENT, EVEN FLAMBOYANT BY HAUT BRION’S STANDARDS. IT IS AN INCREDIBLE EXPRESSION OF A NOBLE TERROIR IN A TOP VINTAGE. 98 WA 3 BTS. PER LOT $2,300 - $2,700




Price Realised: $4200
