This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1943 Haut-Brion

Dinner at the Ukai Taipei.

1943 Haut-Brion, rebouché en 2011, Sotheby's ex-château auction 4 October 2013 - served without decanting. Definitely smoky with tobacco notes, still got the fruit. Condition is very, very good and still very much alive. Around 30 minutes in there was almost a hint of metallic notes. Still OK at about 45 minutes in, with a hint of green bell peppers. The wine lasted more than an hour, which was a testament to its condition.

Full post on dinner is here.
