Description:

*Chateau Haut Brion 1945
Pessac Leognan (Graves) 1er Cru Classe u. top shoulder, label faded and scuffed
"Tasted 5 Times With Consistent Notes The 1945 Haut-Brion is profound. It demonstrates the essence of Haut-Brion's style. The color remains a healthy, opaque garnet with only slight amber at the edge. A huge, penetrating bouquet of sweet black fruits, smoked nuts, tobacco, and tar soars from the glass. The wine possesses extraordinary density and extraction of fruit, massive, full-bodied, unctuously-textured flavors that reveal little tannin, and copious quantities of glycerin and alcohol. It is a fabulously rich, monumental example of a fully mature Haut-Brion that exhibits no signs of decline. Awesome!" R. Parker, 100 pts. 10/94 1 bottle
