"The dark garnet-colored 1961 Haut-Brion is pure perfection, with gloriously intense aromas of tobacco, cedar, chocolate, minerals, and sweet red and black fruits complemented by smoky wood. This has always been a prodigious effort (it was the debut vintage for Jean Delmas). It is extremely full-bodied, with layers of viscous, sweet fruit. This wine is akin to eating candy. Consistently an astonishing wine!" (100pts WA)

「......這支1961年的紅顏容外觀如深色的石榴石,完美無瑕,含濃烈的煙草、雪松、朱古力、礦物質、甜紅果與黑果實,以及煙燻木頭的香氣,一如以往,要經歷龐大工程才釀製而成(這是釀酒家尚‧戴馬斯初度大顯身手的年份)。它酒體極為豐富,擁有黏稠果實的層次感,喝起來的感覺與品嚐糖果相近,永遠是一支令人讚嘆的極品。」(《葡萄酒倡導家》Robert Parker評分:100)
