Château-Haut-Brion Pessac Léognan 1964
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.
