Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blend
Country of Origin: France
Tasting Notes: Michael Broadbent, one the first Masters of Wine, declared the '53 Haut-Brion as one of his favorite wines of the 20th Century. Sixty-eight years after the harvest, the wine still shows outstanding power, with plenty of finesse as well. It still possesses dark fruit characteristics, with a spicy, meaty complexity. The finish was long, leaving echoes of its superb complexity and quality.(If you can find it.)
