Top 10 wines of Bordeaux 2016

3. Haut-Brion

2015 release price: €385 p/b
Neal Martin: 97-99
Jancis Robinson MW: 19
James Suckling: 100

That said, if more partisan buyers are looking around for a first growth to sink some money into then Haut-Brion will likely prove tempting.

Qualitatively, the Pessac-located first growth has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years and this has been reflected in a surge of interest among buyers on the secondary market.

It is currently one of the best-performing first growths and has well and truly risen out of the shadow of its fellow firsts where, perhaps, it previously had dwelt for a little too long.
