1937 Chateau Haut-Brion – half bottle

$795.00

Great surprise 80th Birthday present – imagine drinking a wine from the year you were born, 80 years ago!
To everyone’s surprise, the 1937 Chateau Haut-Brion out-performed the 1947, and the soft, fully mature 1962. 1937 has a justifiable reputation for being a hard vintage, but one could see through the austere, still tannin-dominated 1937 Haut-Brion to admire the healthy, dark, dense color with only some amber at the edge. Minerals, tobacco, cedar, and coffee aromas were followed by a muscular, medium-bodied wine with plenty of power and fruit. But the vintage’s tell-tale hard tannin was still present. This particular magnum of 1937 Haut-Brion would have lasted another 20-30+ years. I suspect many 1975s are the modern day clones of the 1937 vintage. Robert Parker 89 Points, Drinking 1996 – 2026.
