Ratings & Tasting Notes:

97 points Wine Advocate

A dark ruby-colored wine with noticeable amber/rust, the 1955 Haut-Brion offers a huge, fragrant bouquet of walnuts, tobacco, wet stones, and smoky, cassis-like fruit. Medium-bodied, with extraordinary elegance and sweetness, this rich, concentrated wine exhibits no hard edges. Remarkably youthful, as well as concentrated and impeccably well-balanced, it is capable of lasting for another 10-20 years. RP Tasted 4 Times With Consistent Notes – WA, RP (10/1994)

Firm and remarkably fresh for its age, it’s a bit tannic but bright with spicy raspberry and blackberry flavors. (HS)  (4/1997)
