    "The extraordinary 1929 vintage, which may well have been the vintage of the century, with a style that old timers compare to modern day 1982s, or more recently, the 1990s, produced wines that were wonderfully opulent and unctuous. Henri Woltner wrote that the 1929 La Mission drank fabulously well in 1933, yet he doubted its ability to age well. How wrong he was! Still deep garnet in color with only a trace of amber at the edge, this wine exhibits a fabulously exotic, sensual bouquet filled with aromas of tobacco, blackcurrants, cedar, and leather. On the palate it reveals high alcohol, as well as the remarkably sweet, rich, expansive, staggering concentration of fruit necessary to stand up to the alcohol. This is a velvety, lush, full-bodied wine that it is an incredible privilege to drink." (97 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #95, Oct. 1994)
