Château La Mission Haut-Brion 1975
Talence (Pessac-Léognan), Grand Cru Classé
u. vts, label very slightly damp spotted but generally excellent appearance, capsule slightly corroded around collar
Dark as the night. Immensely complex, intellectually fascinating nose - a pretty good sensual experience too! Chocolate and spices. On the palate, so full and sweet. A wondrous wine of immense allure and seduction. Fresh acidity to match the sweetness. Heavenly. Ripe plums and great Havanas at the end. I think this is a chef d'oeuvre. Another bottle had an inky, cassis, aniseed nose and the taste was so soft, sweet and violetty. The wine remains a complete one-off. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
