Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1999

Wow. The over shadowed ‘99 vintage from La Mission. Intensely aromatic, deep and complex. Dried black fruits, sweet red currants, worn leather, black truffles, bbq spices and wet forest floor. Finishes with excellent length, elegance and poise. A fantastic showing now and with emphasis that it has the stuffing to go at least 10 years before decline. A true dark horse vintage for La Mission. — 2 days ago

Premier Grand Cru Classé Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1979

This was consumed ages ago and the empty bottle has always traveled with me. Wine of the year in an off-vintage... purchased for exactly... $59 back in the day at the old Big Y wines in Northampton, MA.

On doit lui laisser 1-2 heures dans le verre pour que la magie s opère. Un nez de fromage au départ qui c’est volatilisé pour laisser place à un grand vin complexe!

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Wanted to put up a future all-time great against two all-time great HBs... the 45 and the 61. Opened and decanted this 9 hours before serving. Light tawny color, translucent and darker than the other HBs. Intense nose with notes of black cherry, black raspberry, hickory, gravel, moist soil, some mocha and some menthol. Huge and powerful in the mouth. Still tannic and young at age 31. Almost port-like. This is easily a 75 year wine, like the 45 sitting next to it - a wine that it can probably surpass as it gains more age, weight, advanced notes and complexity. (Bday 11 of 13) — 11 hours ago

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

From a gorgeous bottle with 4cm of ullage. Slow-ox'd for 3 hours, then gave it 45 min in a decanter, then back in the bottle for consumption and debauchery over 5 more hours. Reddish tawny with amber rims, translucent. Gorgeous nose from the get go. Notes of raspberry jam, cola, cool slate rock, gravel and tan spice. Silky, velvet glove in the mouth. Has some solid structure that balances the ton of fruit this wine still has. The impact of this wine is both its elegance and the energy in the background that makes each sip memorable. This bottle was even better than the year-ago birthday bottle, and tonight it eclipsed my previous favorite 61 Bordeaux of all time (the 61 Palmer). (Bday 9 of 13) — 11 hours ago
