    bsl, rebouchage fait par maitre de chai du chateau en 1989
    Double-Magnum (1)


    "The bouquet is utterly refined, in some ways not as complex as more recent vintages, yet it has a sense of authority and purpose. Vestiges of faded dark fruit mix with scents of an antique mahogany bureau and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, degraded tannin. Surprisingly youthful, it is undoubtedly beautifully balanced with perfectly judged acidity. It does not possess the aristocracy of the 1961 Latour, not the complexity, yet there is something "princely" about this Lafite, blue blooded and yet old school. The glass was finished too quickly—an effortless class act." (93 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate Interim, July 2016)

    HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
