Product description

Intense aromas of violets, berries and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with layers of super silky tannins and a long, long finish. Very classic in style. All in elegance and length. I like it better than the 2000. Best after 2009.

96 Points - Wine Spectator

Complex aromas of black liquorice, tobacco and cedar with red fruits. Full-bodied, with super seductive, silky tannins, loads of fruit and a finish that lasts for minutes. A beauty in all the sense of the word. Best after 2012.

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Restrained power combine with great style and elegance in this beautiful wine. The tannins are certainly solid and serious, but then they are also sweet, dusty ripe, sustaining dense dark plum flavours and only a hint of wood.

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Even better, and clearly the best wine made in the Haut-Brion stable in 2003 (the last vintage of the great Jean-Bernard Delmas as administrator), the 2003 Haut-Brion is a blend of 58% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc that hit 13% natural alcohol, which seemed high at the time, but given more recent vintages is modest. Dark ruby/plum in colour, with no amber or orange at the edge, the wine exhibits an abundance of roasted herbs, hot rocks, black currants, plum, and balsamic notes. Quite rich, medium to full-bodied and more complete, with sweeter tannins than La Mission Haut-Brion, this full-bodied Haut-Brion has hit full maturity, where it should stay for at least a decade. Bravo!
