Tasted 13 Times With Consistent NotesAlthough the 1961 is a great Haut-Brion it is eclipsed in my view by its predecessor the 1959 and more recently by the monumental 1989. Not as darkly colored as many 1961s with surprisingly more amber/brown at the edge this rich luxurious wine has an intense earthy ripe cedary spicy bouquet crammed with sweet fruit. On the palate the wine has fabulous intensity of fruit a long rich alcoholic finish and a chewy texture. The 1961 has been fully mature for the last decade but it does not reveal any signs of decline. This is Haut-Brion at its most sumptuous and hedonistic. Anticipated maturity: now-2000.

Very mature with a smoky even slightly burnt nuance but powerful with ripe cherry toast and tobacco flavors that linger on the solid smooth finish. A glorious mouthful of wine at its best now.--Haut-Brion vertical. ...
