Lot #50. Haut-Brion 1967

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 90 JG.
"Many people find it hard to believe how good the largely forgotten top 1967s continue to drink, with the middleweight Haut-Brion certainly one of the stars of the vintage . . . . I drank nearly a case of this wine which I got out of a cellar back in the early 1990s, and found it consistently delicious. Ten years later, the wine remains as delicious as it was then, with a stunning bouquet of pure blackberry fruit, black truffles, singed tobacco, malty overtones, Haut-Brion earth, and chocolate. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, deep and complex, with a superb intensity (if not much weight), great focus and breed, and a long, complex and silky finish. As I did back in the early 1990s, I would counsel drinking the wine up sooner rather than later, as this wine’s structure began to poke through a bit over the hour we drank it. Lovely juice and well worth searching out from cool cellars. It should be shockingly good from magnum." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2007, Issue #9
