Chateau Haut Brion 5 cm 1971
|Brand||Chateau Haut Brion|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
For me, the 1971 is the best Haut-Brion produced between 1966 and 1975. This fully mature 1971 has a sumptuous, sweet, ripe, earthy, richly fruity flavor, medium to full body, a big, full-intensity, spicy bouquet, and a silky, supple texture. This very stylish and delicious wine should be drunk up. Not retasted since 1982, but I suspect this wine should still be in fine condition.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
