Château Haut Brion 1989

Pessac-Léognan (Graves), 1er Cru Classé

Levels into the neck, labels slightly scuffed, nicked and bin-soiled; one bottle shows slight signs of old seepage; wines come from 2 different importers

Every single plot was green harvested to produce this density and they even chaptalized the wine! In 2014, a great black olive, 'tapenade' nose. On the palate, there is a touch of both vanillin and the sea, with sandalwood elements. The volume is impressive, with concentration all through. You can almost eat this.
