By far and away the best wine of the evening, the Haut Brion has a pretty bouquet that becomes floral in the glass. Classic dark black fruit infused with cedar, truffle and tobacco gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. Foursquare but well balanced, the Haut-Brion '94 has retained vigor and style, a perfect gentleman's claret. Drink now. Tasted April 2014.
