2013 Haut Brion: Tuesday Night Elegance!



Looking for the perfect 'Tuesday night' Haut Brion that's open for business right now? We've got you covered!
If you want to experience a First Growth producer but without the price tag that comes with key vintages, these bottles of 2013 Haut Brion are just the wine for you. There is an argument to be made that top producers like Haut Brion have the ability to produce excellent wines, even in the most challenging of vintages. 
In 2013, the real success story was with the winemaking – there were plenty of producers who worked exceptionally well with the vintage, taking their foot off the pedal and allowing the vibrancy of the fruit to shine through wherever possible. Anyone who tried to cover up unripe fruit with too much oak, or over-extraction, suffered. The best wines have a refreshing drinkability, relatively low alcohol levels, soft fruits and plenty to offer and the 2013 Haut Brion is all of those things and more!
Wine Enthusiast said, "the production is tiny, yet the potential of this wine is enormous" and Suckling said, "already open and delicious to drink." 
As shown in the photo above, these bottles are pristine and ready to take their rightful place in your cellar - Our bottles came from Original Wood Cases that were purchased on release - Available to you without the premium that normally comes with that!




The production is tiny, yet the potential of this wine is enormous, with its tight, textured structure that is still so young. It is opulent and generous while still keeping a tight rein on its emotions. A steely core is surrounded by fruit that has hints of apricots as well as citrus. This will be a very fine wine but it needs many years, so wait until 2022. – Wine Enthusiast, 97 points


This is very, very long and intense with velvety tannins and plenty of sweet tobacco, cedar and dark berry aromas and flavors. Already open and delicious to drink. This is difficult to say it’s 2013. Fantastic for the vintage. Only 45% of the normal production. – James Suckling, 95 points
