As usual, year after year, the Pessac-Léognan Château Haut-Brion 1er Gran Cru Classé turns out to be a wine of great class, which does not need any words too many. This is the 1er Grand Cru Classé from the area of ​​Graves, famous for its elegance and the obsessive care that is carried out in the vineyard as in the cellar. It is one of those very few wines that we can define as part of the Olympus. Noble and elegant.

Very bright ruby ​​red color. The nose is of great richness and elegance, centered on notes of black truffle together with fruity hints of blueberries, black cherry, raspberry and plum.
In the finish the aromas of roasted figs emerge along with those of tobacco leaves, cedar wood and a subtle balsamic note.
On the palate it is extremely broad, engaging, with a memorable structure. The fruity and mineral aromas balance perfectly, supported by great freshness and excellent tannins. Single persistence.
