Lot #68. La Mission Haut-Brion 1975

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"The 1975 La Mission-Haut-Brion has been the most consistent wine of the vintage. Super-concentrated, and now beginning to shed enough tannin so that it can be fully appreciated, this enormously constituted La Mission-Haut-Brion has developed that fabulous Graves set of aromatics - tobacco, black fruits, minerals, roasted herbs, and cedar. Huge, massive, thick, and succulent, with moderate tannin, and some amber notes at the edge, this wine will reach full maturity by the turn of the century and last for 30-40 years. An extraordinary La Mission-Haut-Brion, it comes closest in style to resembling the 1945, with a hint of the sweet, ripe 1959." Wine Advocate #103, Feb 1996
Provenance: The Alton Cellar
Notes: 5 Top shoulder, 1 high shoulder, lightly corroded, nicked, light adhesive residue on capsules, nicked, 2 lightly wrinkled, 2 lightly faded, very lightly scuffed labels, 4 signs of slight past seepage.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,250
