    Château Haut-Brion 2005
    Pessac (Graves), 1er cru classé
    Offered in a six-bottle original wooden case
    Tasting note: When the much revered Jean Delmas comments that the ’05 vintage is one of the best he has ever experienced (and likened it to his ’61), then one must take this as high praise indeed. The cépage mix – note the high percentage of Merlot, 56%, Cabernet Sauvignon 39%, Cabernet Franc 5%. Impressively deep of course; very distinctive and harmonious from the start; sweet, fleshy, soft tannins, in short – glorious. At the château with Jean-Philippe Delmas, April 2006 (*****) 2015 – 2030. MB.
    6 bottles per lot
