Sensational. Mature, generous and deep, a many-layered wine that shows sweet berry and chocolate flavors under a layer of slightly scratchy tannins. A second bottle was more supple, with a sweeter finish.--Haut-Brion... Sensational.

Vinous but on the lean side, with a slight hardness. A less-than-stellar bottle that losing its fruit. ($1,395-$1,475): Old aromas of plum, marzipan and nutty oak. Lovely sweetness and mellow fruit enlivened by superb vinosity. Complicating note of tobacco. Very much an old wine but still with considerable appeal and length, if a trace of finishing dryness. But not a great bottle of this wine, which I've scored in the recent past as high as 98 points.

...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.
