A bit of a disappointment considering the vintage. Also suffered from being served with '59 La Mission Haut Brion, '59 Latour and '61 Mouton Rothschild. This was the least of the four, by far.

Very mature with a smoky even slightly burnt nuance but powerful with ripe cherry toast and tobacco flavors that linger on the solid smooth finish. A glorious mouthful of wine at its best now.--Haut-Brion vertical. HS Wine Spectator.

Dark purple color. Fruity nose fresh and of ripe type. Aromatic and fine. Fat on entry the wine develops both with volume and flesh on a body of nice size appearing tasty with a lovely touch fine tannins and a powerful finish. The length is good and aromatic. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com


Winemaker's Notes:

Typically brackish colour of mature Graves, and traditional aroma too, warmearth, tobacco leaf and dried fruits. Kernel of deliciously sweet fruit on thepalate, acidity showing a little at the edges but still a glorious bottle,ageing gracefully. Long finish.
