Description: After decades of argument, the debate continues over which Haut-Brion is greater - 1959 or 1961? The 1959, which is certainly less evolved, gets my nod as slightly superior to the full-blown, completely mature 1961. The 1959 offers a spectacular, rich, garnet/plummy color, a magnificent bouquet of roasted chestnuts, sweet, jammy, black-cherry, and raspberry fruit, and an intense, mineral, chocolate, coffee aroma. Super-concentrated, with layer upon layer of fat, supple, jammy fruit, a voluptuous texture, and a sweet, long, heady finish, this magnificent Haut-Brion has reached its plateau of maturity...
