Description:

Chateau Haut Brion 1959
Pessac Leognan, 1er Cru Classe
u: 4cm, corrosion, discoloration and staining to capsule, heavy staining to label
"A true marvel of vinous artistry. This 58-year-old masterpiece flits from wild rose to tar to otherworldly smokiness with the coolness of menthol and a delicate herbal tone. Tannins and acidity are so harmoniously married, the mere act of breathing in the wine creates the most delightful change in taste and experience. These sensations and more morph; each sip is a new sensation lingering for what feels like an infinite length. This wine should be on every serious oenophile's bucket list." APW 04/2017
1 bottle
Estimate $1,500-2,500
