Château Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

$549

This has always been one of the more seductive, savory, complex Haut-Brions of the eighties. My notes have always suggested that it is the quintessentially elegant, finesse-styled Haut-Brion. The color remains a deep ruby/purple with slight lightening at the edge. The knock-out nose of intense jammy black fruits, smoke, cedar, herbs, and new oak is followed by a generously concentrated, rich, gorgeously proportioned and layered Haut-Brion with no hard edges. Everything - alcohol, acidity, tannin - is beautifully integrated into the seamless personality of the 1985... Robert Parker

This is a very serious, dark brooding wine. All kinds of dark fruit, leather, an iodine like blood thing. Great gnarly stuff. Serious wine, with huge depth and character. Real intensity. Decades ahead. What a treat.

Las Cases ready right of the bottle. Haut Brion needed some time but is drinking nicely.
