Description:

Chateau Haut Brion 1961
Pessac Leognan, 1er Cru Classe
u: one very top, one top shoulder, slight label nicks and bin soil

"The dark garnet-colored 1961 Haut-Brion is pure perfection, with gloriously intense aromas of tobacco, cedar, chocolate, minerals, and sweet red and black fruits complemented by smoky wood. This has always been a prodigious effort (it was the debut vintage for Jean Delmas). It is extremely full-bodied, with layers of viscous, sweet fruit. This wine is akin to eating candy. Consistently an astonishing wine! Anticipated maturity: Now-2005. Last tasted 3/97" R. Parker, 100 pts. 01/98

Estimate $1,600-2,400
