Château Haut-Brion Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1985

$579

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

Graceful 30 year old, hypnotic nose of forest floor, fig, mineral, spice, cedar and dried herb. Awesome finish that goes on and on.

Perfect wine for a Sunday night dinner for my wife's bday. Drinking beautifully with amazing fruit, dried spice and copious amounts of dried flowers and earth. This is at its peak now. Drink it over the next 10 years

Some slightly oxidative notes. A waxy, lemony intense mid-palate. Long and intense. Wouldn't have spotted what this is. Tasty
