product Details

Chateau Haut Brion 1976 Graves

Chateau Haut Brion is one of the great Bordeaux wine estates, listed as one of only four 1st Growths in the official Bordeaux wine classification of 1855.  This ranking is commonly referred to as the "1855 Classification of Medoc" - although Haut Brion is located in Graves (not the Medoc), such was and is its quality that the Chateau merits inclusion.

The wines of Chateau Haut Brion feature varying compositions of approximately 40-50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35-45% Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, matured in oak barrels (80% new) for 18-22 months.

This bottle features an interesting peculiarity as the printed label states volume as 73cl while both the glass-embossing and import label state volume as 75cl - however, this discrepancy is commonly found on Bordeaux wines of this era.

This bottle is in good condition: light cosmetic damage to label/seal; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
