    Description

    Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 1978
    Pessac-Leognan
    1bn, 3ts, 1vhs, 9lbsl, 1lwrl
    Bottle (12)
    "The 1978 La Mission-Haut-Brion is a strong candidate for the wine of the vintage. It is deep ruby/purple-colored with no signs of evolution. The wine is much more backward than Haut-Brion. It is intensely fragrant, displaying a supple, smooth, velvety texture, and well-developed, rich, cassis, gravel, and smoky scents and flavors. It is very full bodied, rich, and supple. This layered, concentrated wine can be drunk now, but promises to be even better with additional bottle age." (96pts Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan 1998)
