Lot #158. Haut-Brion Blanc 1985

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 RP.
"This has been a head turner since it was made. The 1985 is unbelievably rich, with a velvety, fat consistency oozing with herb, melon, and fig-like fruit. This voluptuously textured wine exhibits great length, richness, and character. It never closed up after bottling and remains an exceptionally full-bodied, intensely concentrated, yet well-delineated white Graves. Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition, Jan 1998
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: 2cm, very lightly wine stained capsule, heavily faded, heavily scuffed, damp stained, bin soiled label.
