Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
(01-1998)
In the fifties, sixties, and seventies, La Mission-Haut-Brion and Latour were the two chateaux that were considered to be one's best gambles in the terrible vintages. With the 1968, La Mission clearly proved its ability to turn out good wines in disastrous years. No vintage had worse climatic conditions than 1968. Yet this 1968 proved to be one of the surprises, even though it's hardly a great wine. A soft, warm, generously fruity, leather-scented bouquet is followed by a wine that is round, alcoholic (no doubt the wine was chaptalized quite a bit), with a velvety, oaky, sweet finish. The wine lacks complexity, but still has fruit, and the high alcohol gives it a generous, warm, pleasant character.

Same style as one year older sister, but somewhat fresher, more weight and longer on the palate. Actually some fruit sweetness on the nose. Quite successful wine for the vintage.

Château informations
Mission Haut Brion
Le château la Mission Haut-Brion, est un domaine viticole situé à Talence  en Gironde. Situé en AOC Pessac-Léognan, il est classé grand cru dans le classement des vins de Graves.C'est sans doute cette propension à tout donner à la fois qui distingue les vins de La Mission Haut-Brion et qui séduit nombre de dégustateurs. Mais la Mission Haut-Brion c'est aussi l'expression exacerbée du terroir des Graves de Pessac. Dans le cours de son élevage et en prenant de l'âge, la Mission Haut-Brion  est toujours généreux, il se livre totalement en permanence. Le côté hédoniste de la Mission Haut-Brion, de cette permanence de ces qualités est aussi une de ses particularités très séduisantes.
