Château La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1978

9.51 rating on Delectable
$685

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...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. Robert Parker

Another beyond the numbers bottle. So many flavors. Asphalt, coffee, dust, mocha, a kiss of cedar, stewed cherries, touch of menthol. Hints of wilted violets dance across the palate.
