Lot #29. La Mission Haut Brion 1961

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"One of the greatest 1961s, La Mission-Haut-Brion has been fabulous to drink for the last 5-10 years. Where well-stored, this wine will continue to drink well for 10-20 years. It is more developed and drinkable than the 1959, and it remains a thick, rich, super-aromatic wine with a textbook Graves bouquet of tobacco, barbecued meats, minerals, spices, and sweet red and black fruits. It is dense, full-bodied, alcoholic, and super-rich. This soft, opulently-textured wine makes for a fabulous drink. Absolutely stunning!" Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition, Dec 1997
Provenance: The Foxy Cellar
Notes: Upper mid shoulder, lightly damp stained, lightly faded, lightly glue stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $3,000
