The growing season began under a rainy sky in spring. Flowering was even and homogeneous thanks to warm temperatures and the absence of rain in late May/early June. July, August, and September were also very dry. In fact, 2009 was one of the driest vintages in recent years which meant that the grapes ripened perfectly. The harvest took place staring on the last day of August and lasted until the first week in October, under conditions that every winemaker dreams of, with the near total absence of precipitation.
The purplish-red color is the first sign of this wine's concentration. When swirled in the glass, it displays a deep, warm, very ripe bouquet. 2009 Chateau Haut-Brion is full of flavor from the beginning to end. It is so rich and concentrated that we are tempted to use the word "thick." However, this thickness is in no way synonymous with heaviness thanks to a counterbalancing freshness. 2009 Chateau Haut-Brion is reminiscent of 2005 in terms of power, but is even more concentrated.
