Lot Details


Château Haut Brion 1961 

Pessac-Léognan (Graves), 1er Cru Classé

u. 2x4.5cm, 1x5cm, otherwise level into the neck, bin soiled and damp stained labels, 1 faded label, 1 wine stained label, 2 nicked labels, 1 torn label, 1 corroded capsule, 2 oxidized capsules, 1 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
