A surprisingly rich, round, delicious wine from an overlooked vintage. Medium ruby, with a garnet edge, ripe, perfumed raspberry aromas, full-bodied, with raspberry and earth flavors, medium-full tannins and a rich, sweet finish.

The year 1964 is one of those vintages that turned out to be great for Pomerol, St.-Emilion, and Graves, but most of the Medoc properties got caught with their Cabernet Sauvignon unpicked when the heavy rains began to fall. La Mission-Haut-Brion has always been one of the great successes of the vintage, but it has just turned the corner and is beginning a slow decline. I say that having cellared quite a few bottles of this vintage, which allows me to taste it frequently. It displays a dark ruby color that is just beginning to show a trace of amber and orange. The bouquet is classic La Mission with scents of cedar, leather, smoke, and even a trace of truffles in this vintage. It is still an expansively flavored wine with a lovely, sweet ripeness to its fruit, and a heady, alcoholic finish. Those who have it cellared should contemplate drinking it.

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.
