1970 Chateau Haut Brion Bordeaux Double Magnum - 3000ml
This wine has enjoyed a spectacular development in the bottle and while drinkable upon release it remains one of the most sumptuous complex and satisfying Haut-Brions of the last twenty years. It is certainly the finest wine of the vintage from Bordeaux's Left Bank. The wine has taken on a dark plummy/garnet color and displays a magnificent tres Haut-Brion nose of jammy black fruits earth tobacco smoke and sweet fruitcake aromas. It is rich and medium to full-bodied with impressive elegance purity and overall harmony. This is not a powerhouse or exceptionally opulent style of Haut-Brion (such as the 1989 and 1990) but rather a more structured yet authoritatively flavorful wine. It offers power richness and elegance in a wine with extraordinary equilibrium. RP
