Great scores and feedback from the critics:

The Wine Advocate’s Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW released her assessment of the 2019 Haut Brion this morning. She awarded the wine (97-99)+ points, and said that “this is one of the most finely structured, tightly knit wines of the vintage. Given time, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it goes atomic and eventually takes top place for the vintage”. She revealed that “the estimated label alcohol degree is 14.5%”.

James Suckling (99-100pts) was also full of praise for the First Growth. He described it as “full-bodied with great, tight fruit, subtle and complex”, with “great length, going on and on for minutes”.
