The second wine of Haut-Brion is a stunner and has one of the best track records of any second wine in Bordeaux, (the 1989 is widely regarded as the finest second wine ever produced).

Much of Haut-Brion's unique terroir comes across in this earlier maturing style, and with one of Bordeaux's greates winemaking teams behind it, the wine is complex and long-lived. Originally known as Bahans Haut-Brion, this is now called Le Clarence de Haut-Brion.

I did think I had sold all my bottles but I found this bottle in another case! This is fully mature but still drinking beautifully.

Robert Parker: 91

The 2000 Bahans Haut-Brion is fully mature, but I had indicated that back in 2003, giving it an anticipated maturity date of 2005-2016. Its smoky, soft berry fruit and notes of fresh porcini mushrooms intermixed with cigar tobacco and black currants are complex. This complexity is followed by a fleshy, elegant, silky wine to drink over the next 5-6 years. Haut-Brion can be among the trickiest Bordeaux to taste young, often needing a full decade before the extraordinary complexity that marks this terroir begins to emerge. I was thrilled to see how well both the second wine, Bahans Haut-Brion, and Haut-Brion performed in this tasting, and both scores are slight upgrades. Wine Advocate.June, 2010
