One rare and unique, 1989 MAGNUM of Chateau Haut Brion, conserved in mint condition. The highest aggregated scoring vintage Haut Brion ever produced, and an icon for Bordeaux's history.

Robert Parker, Hedonist Gazette, November 2005:

Undeniably one of the greatest wines made in Bordeaux in the last 25 years is the 1989 Haut Brion. Jean Delmas gave a touching speech about how, in his lifetime, he had never produced such a wine, and it was literally off the charts. He made the point of saying that all the greatest vintages of Bordeaux drink well young, yet have such remarkable balance/equilibrium that they can age for decades. The 1989 is beginning to reveal hints of secondary nuances, but it is so sensuous, rich, opulent, and super-concentrated as to be almost unimaginable. Drink 2005-2030.

Kept in temperature and humidity controlled cellar.
