Cellar/Tasting Notes
Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion Graves 1975 (Bordeaux, France) 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. It is one of the biggest, most concentrated, and tannic wines made in the last 30 years in Bordeaux.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 97
"This is undisputably the wine of the vintage, a year that was clearly over-exposed and over-rated, largely because it was better than the four vintages that preceded it ... The 1975 La Mission-Haut-Brion, which consistently received perfect scores in its first thirty years of life, remains a vibrant, vital wine ... La Mission possesses enough evidence of greatness to stand alone as the finest 1975 ... The color is a dark garnet with just a touch of lightening at the rim. Notes of camphor, wood charcoal, black fruits, plums, cedar, damp earth, truffles, asphalt and smoke result in a fabulous set of aromatics that are nothing short of compelling. Based on the aromatics alone, this offering would merit a perfect score ... Nevertheless, this is a freak for the year – very concentrated, dense and remarkably youthful ..."
