1975 Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion Bordeaux - 99 pts!

La Mission Haut Brion is situated in Bordeaux' southern suburb, Talence. From 1919 and until 1983, it was Woltner family, who had owned this property. Under Woltner's reign, La Mission Haut Brion experienced one of its most significant period with a string of excellent vintages and was considered then as fully on the level with First Growths and sometimes even better than these. In 1983, owners of Haut Brion purchased La Mission Haut Brion and today its Jean Philippe Delmas, who's responsible for this property.

There is 20 ha of vines planted with 48 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, vines are on average 21 years old, and the wine spends 20 months in new oak. It's challenging and almost impossible to resist La Mission Haut Brion's fantastic richness, silky structure, extraordinary balance and sophisticated/refined "look". La Mission Haut Brion is irresistible even in average vintages and is famous for a legendary long life of its wines.

Robert Parker

Rating 99 RP - A wine that I have always considered virtually perfect, I have backed off slightly simply because, at 27 years of age, it seems certain that the enormous tannins of this wine are never going to be totally assimilated. Nevertheless, this is a wine that is going to easily last at least 50-60 years. It still has a 100-point bouquet of scorched earth, tobacco, black fruits, liquid minerals, roasted herbs, cedar, and licorice. Huge, massive, and full-bodied, with enormous concentration., this behemoth is one of the biggest, most concentrated, and tannic wines made in the last 30 years in Bordeaux. Perhaps it will ultimately absorb its tannin, but this is a modern-day clone of the 1945 La Mission-Haut-Brion, and a wine that can be drunk now but promises to evolve effortlessly for at least three more decades.
