Lot 3160
Chateau La Mission Haut Brion
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
"It is the most powerful and concentrated wine of the vintage, exceeding even such large-scaled wines as Chateau Margaux, Latour, and Lafleur. La Mission's color is a broodingly deep, almost murky purple/garnet. The nose continues to be classic, old style La Mission in its exotic aromas of roasted meats, jammy black fruits, and cedary spices. Immensely full-bodied and super-concentrated, with none of the weedy, herbaceous character so noticeable in other 1978s, this huge, massive wine is just reaching full maturity. It can be expected to last for 15-20 years. It is a classic, old style La Mission-Haut-Brion that provides memorable drinking."(95pts RP)
