Château Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan 1981

Haut Brion 1981

Incandescent garnet, mature rim.  Cheekbony now, aromatic and so wise, her polished structure in full-repose: citrus-tinged, allspice-scented and a rust that never sleeps.  Black-tea and autumnal-leaf at the end, at once murmury and meditative.  Not for keeping but she will if you ask her to, such is her poise.
