The 1975 La Tour-Haut-Brion has consistently been a great wine. As many wine enthusiasts have done, I have made the mistake of drinking it too early. I have only two bottles (from a case and a half) remaining in my cellar. The wine is more developed than La Mission-Haut-Brion, exhibiting a huge, sweet, cedary, tobacco, mineral, chocolatey, smoky, cassis-scented nose and flavors. It is massive and full-bodied, with well-integrated tannin (because of the wine's sweet, jammy fruit). The wine exhibits good grip and that firm edge found in almost all the 1975s. It is a wine of extraordinary extract and aging potential that should drink well for another 20+ years.

Château La Mission Haut Brion

The Château La Mission Haut-Brion, is a vineyard located in Talence in Gironde. Located in AOC Pessac-Léognan, it is classified Grand Cru in the classification of wines of Graves. The estate was bought in 1983 by the Dillon family, owner of Haut Brion. It is undoubtedly this propensity to give everything at once that distinguishes the wines of La Mission Haut-Brion and seduces many tasters. It is also the exacerbated expression of the soil of Graves of Pessac. In the course of its breeding and getting older, the Mission Haut-Brion is always generous, it is committed totally permanently. The hedonistic side of the Mission Haut-Brion and the permanence of these qualities are features that make it very attractive. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion is the second wine of the domain.

The greatest vintages are : 2000, 1994, 1993, 1990, 1989, 1988, 1986, 1985, 1982, 1981, 1979, 1978, 1975, 1964, 1961, 1959, 1955, 1953, 1952, 1950, 1949, 1948, 1947, 1945, 1929.
