Savory, bright red currants with accents of underbrush, spice, cassis and cedar dominate the wine. Medium-bodied, crisp and savory, the finish is firm, fruity and already easy to drink. 89-91 Pts

2019 Château Haut-Bages Monpelou  (Pauillac) 90
Fresh, crisp, bright red fruits with a nice crunch along with a touch of spice and tobacco leaf form the core of this wine. On the palate, the cassis is pure, lifted and long, with a touch of ripe, cranberry and herbs finishes everything off nicely. Drink from 2025-2039.

Forward, fresh and juicy with a concentration of freshness, fruit and refinement I have not seen here before. The cassis is pure, lifted and long, with nuances of tobacco, earth and cigar box. This is going to a very fine, well-priced Pauillac with just 5 years or so in the cellar. 89-91 Pts

2018 Château Haut-Bages Monpelou  (Pauillac) 90
Crisp, chewy, ripe, juicy, with tobacco leaf, cedar and red currants on the nose and classically styled palate. This is probably the finest Haut-Bages Monpelou ever produced.

Easy drinking, medium bodied, cassis filled wine with cedar, forest floor and tobacco notes to round things out.

A straight shot of cassis into this lean wine will not need much, if any, time in the cellar before popping the cork. 82 - 84 Pts
