Another stupendous vintage from Haut Brion.
All of my wine is held in Bond at Vine International in London (UK). My cases are in perfect condition and typically all come in Original Wooden Case. My private agent, Mr Robert Reed, is managing the sale of my stock, and would love to talk to you about the wine and arrange shipping of the wine to your preferred location.
I have over 4 cases of this most excellent wine sitting in bond in London.
Full provenance available on request and pictures of stock in warehouse available to serious interested parties.
96 Points - Robert Parker - "It is fun to go back and forth between the 1995 and 1996, two superb vintages for Haut-Brion. The 1995 seems to have sweeter tannin and a bit more fat and seamlessness when compared to the more structured and muscular 1996. Certainly 1995 was a vintage that the brilliant administrator Jean Delmas handled flawlessly. The result is a deep ruby/purple-colored wine with a tight but promising nose of burning wood embers intermixed with vanilla, spice box, earth, mineral, sweet cherry, black currant, plum-like fruit, medium to full body, a high level of ripe but sweet tannin, and a finish that goes on for a good 40-45 seconds"
95 Points - James Suckling - "Sweet tobacco, blackberries and violets on the nose. Subtle. Full-bodied and very tight, with fantastic tannins and a long caressing finish. Wonderful texture. All in reserve still"
