Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Haura Graves 2016

Rated 91 by Wine Enthusiast
Still very dry and closed up, this hand-picked wine holds promise in its weight. Dark tannins dominate, masking hints of black fruits and rich berries. The wine, produced by Denis Dubourdieu Domaines, needs time, so wait until 2022.
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Haura felt a little overdone on the nose, perhaps just a couple of vats of Merlot that ran away a little during fermetation? The palate is more structured and grippy in the mouth and yet it still suggests a slightly overlong extraction, leaving a little bitterness on the finish. The 2015 from this Pessac-LĂ©ognan was excellent, but I think the 2016 does not quite match up.

Additional Information on Chateau Haura Graves 2016

Winery Chateau Haura

Region: Bordeaux

Although most commonly associated with their superb blended red wines, the world-famous region of Bordeaux in France is responsible for a relatively wide array of wines, ranging from the sweet and viscous white wines of Sauternes, to the dry and acidic single variety white wines found all over the region. However, it is the red wines which regularly make the wine world's headlines, and have historically been regarded as the finest on earth. The secret to the region's success is the fact that the warm and humid climate, coupled with mineral rich clay and gravel based soils produces grapes of excellent quality. Wineries in this region have spent hundreds of years mastering the art of blending and oak aging in order to get the best results from each grape, and remain the envy of the world to this day.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
