Lot #521. Haut-Brion 1961

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"The dark garnet-colored 1961 Haut-Brion is pure perfection, with gloriously intense aromas of tobacco, cedar, chocolate, minerals, and sweet red and black fruits complemented by smoky wood. This has always been a prodigious effort (it was the debut vintage for Jean Delmas). It is extremely full-bodied, with layers of viscous, sweet fruit. This wine is akin to eating candy. Consistently an astonishing wine!" Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition, Dec 1997
Notes: 1 x 4cm, 1 x 4.5cm, heavily corroded and scuffed capsules, 1 lightly torn capsule, bin soiled, lightly damp stained and scuffed labels, 1 nicked and marked label, 1 lightly wine stained and lightly torn label, 1 import tag partially covering front label, 2 different importers.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,000
