Lot Details


Château Haut Brion 1961 

Pessac-Léognan (Graves), 1er Cru Classé

u. 7cm, bin soiled and damp stained label, oxidized capsule, signs of old seepage

This was the year when some stainless steel vats were introduced at Haut Brion, the first in Bordeaux. In 2014, a devilishly deep, aromatic nose, with notes of gravel and lead pencil. Great cherry and bilberry flavours on the palate. This is a huge, chewy, almost edible wine, doing honour to this incredible vintage. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
