    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grown on the same land as Château Haut-Brion, Château Bahans Haut-Brion, profits from the same planting and harvest techniques, and has the advantage of the same rigorous selection and thoroughness in vinification as the "Grand Vin".

    Bahans Haut-Brion is aged partly in new barrels and partly in barrels that have been used for the previous year's First Growth.

    Undoubtedly, this Second Wine of a First Classified Growth, Château Bahans Haut-Brion, is a great wine on its own merits.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Soft and balanced, showing lovely velvety tannins and lots of coffee, chocolate, toasty oak and mushroom character, with bright fruit underneath. Full-bodied, round and unctuous. The second wine of Haut-Brion. Best after 2013. 9,580 cases made

    Wine Spectator

    The second wine of Chateau Haut-Brion is firm, mirroring its grand vin. It is dark, brooding and dense, rounded by ripe fruits. There is also an edge of bitter chocolate that offers an intriguing counterpoint to the elegance of the fruit.

    Deep red-ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, smoke and minerals. Fat, plush and seamless in the mouth, with a nicely restrained sweetness to the slowly mounting flavors of raspberry and smoke. The compelling ripeness and sweetness of fruit of the vintage come through loud and clear on the back end.
