Château Haut-Brion’s tasting notes The wine is fresh and very fruity. It is dominated by Merlot and shows much suppleness and breadth in the mouth. It has a good tannic structure while remaining harmonious. This wine surprises one with the softness of its tannins.

We have just 24 bottles remaining which are perfectly stored in their original wooden cases. Available for inspection at our East Surrey wine store. Duty and VAT paid stock
