Château-Haut-Brion Pessac Léognan 1964

SKU 10077


A very good year. The grapes were ripe and very fragile. Haut Brion started its harvests very quickly, and they were nearly finished before the rains. The wine is today flavorful, long, with finesse needing more time to achieve fulfillment.

Wine Advocate1964, while a mixed vintage for the wines of the Medoc as a result of many properties being caught by the heavy rains, was a very good year for the Graves chateaux. Haut-Brion's 1964 is fully mature as evidenced by the amber edge to its color, and has a splendidly rich, earthy, tobacco-and-mineral-scented bouquet. Ripe, deep, supple, voluptuous flavors are present on the palate. This full-bodied wine should be drunk up as it is living dangerously.

Wine SpectatorMature, a bit woodsy, but with a sense of elegance and harmony that shows off the wisps of black cherry and tobacco flavor. Seems to be fading.
