1982 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.

Rating 99 RP - An extraordinary effort that gets better with each tasting this dark murky garnet/purple-colored 1982 exhibits a fabulously complex nose of hot bricks asphalt black fruits tar roast beef and truffles colossal concentration super-ripeness an unctuous texture and low acidity. While still exceptionally youthful this wine is powerful dense large-scaled and intense. It is evolving at a snail's pace but should continue to improve for another 10-15 years and last for another three decades. A candidate for perfection! RP
