Tasted blind. Dark tawny. Almost opaque. Notes of dark cherry, cola, soil, rhubarb, cigar, and lots of gravel. Elegant in the mouth. You know it’s special juice from a great year. I guessed 61 LMHB. The 59 HB continues to deliver special experiences.

From a bottle with a nice fill and solid cork. Tawny color. Dense. Exotic nose. Notes of plum, black cherries, old wood desk, tobacco, leather saddle, dark soil and a little menthol. Improved over 5 hours as it got more air. Long finish. A truly great aged bottle of HB.

Bouquet, unbelievable. This is a Beautiful beautiful wine. Nothing hits you over the head. It's purely sublime. Subtle shifting notes in an incredibly integrated experience. This wine makes you consider the chemical possibilities of producing such a masterpiece. Medium bodied, violet, raspberry and rose hip overlaying light Winter spice and pine. A little tar makes its way in after breathing to further enhance its dimensionality.

From an old dusty bottle bought at auction with 5 cm fill. Dark ruby with purple center and tawny reddish orange rims. Great old wine nose of warm dark fruit, gravel, barnyard soil and wood pile. Still some great structure in the mouth that matches the present but slightly fading fruit. Steady performance over 9 hours of enjoyment. Great Haut Brion. This wine seems like it will last forever.

Long smooth palate... black truffles, slight hibiscus and red flowers. Violets..decanted for a small period of time. Iron at the end slightly.

Who knows if I will ever be able to sample this wine again but wow, this one definitely lived up to the hype. So perfectly balanced and more fruit@on a wine this old than I have ever seen.

Rich wine with cedar and currant highlights; more refined than prior bottles; everything in balance; long finish; in a great drinking window right now.
