Château Haut Brion 1928

Pessac-Léognan (Graves), 1er Cru Classé

u. ts, label soiled, cork slightly raised, capsule slightly corroded

This has always been a wine to cause comment, seemingly super-extracted and sweet. In 2014, it was all toffee and raisins, with high volatile acidity that makes it seem almost ageless. A conundrum, but a riveting one.
