Up there with the best wines ever made. It may not get closer to perfection than this and its scores put it in a class of its own.

Robert Parker who awarded this wine 100/100 points, said "The dark garnet-colored 1961 Haut-Brion is pure perfection, with gloriously intense aromas of tobacco, cedar, chocolate, minerals, and sweet red and black fruits complemented by smoky wood. This has always been a prodigious effort (it was the debut vintage for Jean Delmas). It is extremely full-bodied, with layers of viscous, sweet fruit. This wine is akin to eating candy. Consistently an astonishing wine!"

Due to the age of this wine we cannot guarantee the drinking condition that it is in. We suggest you visit www.cellartracker.com to find recent reviews. The labels and capsules on two of the bottles are in great condition. The label is damaged on one and has fallen off which is no surprise for a wine of this age, but the capsule is in good nick.
