"The 1967 vintage is not one of the most coveted today and that's unfortunate. We were impressed not only by this example of a classic Haut Brion but also the wine's remarkable notes of iron, iodine, and ions after a summer thunderstorm. Wet earth, tar, tobacco, and cedar encapsulate a damson plum core, grape pip tannins, and an (almost) citrusy tinge of acidity. Plush and luxurious, this wine reveals not a hint of strain from the challenging vintage." Fine Wines Department 02/2019
10 bottles
Estimate $1,700-2,100
