Sunday, November 11, 2012 - Had alongside the 89 Lynch and clearly a beauty. More feminine than the powerful, muscular 89...but it has plenty of life left for those that enjoy mature clarets.

As much as I love red wines, one of my favorite wines in Haut Brion Blanc. I am not in the wine business, but I have the pleasure of drinking with various parties who are involved with the wine trade. Cheers
