Château Haut Brion, 1er Cru Classé, Pessac Léognan, Low Level, Damaged Capsule, SHC, 1959

Tasting Note:

"The 1959 Haut-Brion did not live up to expectations. I have had nearly perfect examples of the 1959, often preferring it ever so slightly to the 1961 when tasted side by side. That was not the case in Munich. Although the 1959 was outstanding, it seemed less concentrated, more disjointed, and more evolved than the 1961, displaying a more roasted aromatic profile, and less sweetness and unctuosity than previous bottles."

- 93/100 - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, February 1996
