Lot #102. Haut-Brion 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 JL.
"A beautiful vintage for Haut-Brion that continues getting better with age. The aromatics shine due to all the smoke, burning ember, dark red berry, crushed stone and tobacco wrapper notes. The full-bodied, concentrated, richly textured palate steals the show. Lush, refined, concentrated, deep and long, the fruit simply cascades across your palate. The stunner is showing great today with an hour of air. But if you can wait . . . . it is going to be even better." Jeff Leve, TheWineCellarInsider.com, Dec 2020
Provenance: The Méribel Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $475
