The 2022 Haut-Brion comes across as a bit restrained, given the natural
opulence of the year and the other wines in the Clarence Dillon portfolio.
Deep and wonderfully layered, the 2022 possesses remarkable depth but
also a bit less of the explosive energy that is such a Haut-Brion signature. I
suspect that will come in time, as the 2022 starts to show quite a bit better
with a little aeration. Violet, gravel, incense, leather, tobacco and scorched
earth linger. Superb.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 95-97/100
The 2022 Haut-Brion shows considerable promise, revealing aromas of dark berries and plums mingled with notions of pencil lead, licorice, tobacco leaf, spices and incense. Full-bodied, broad and seamless, it’s rich and muscular, with a deep, layered core of fruit framed by an ample endowment of tannin. This blend of 53.6% Merlot, 35.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc, the result is a lip-smacking exemplification of controlled power. Analytically, the 2022 possesses a similar level of tannins to the 2010, and a similar pH to the 2009, yet it is more suave and polished than the 2010 at the same stage, and seemingly more dynamic than the 2009.
