CHÂTEAU LA MISSION HAUT-BRION 1982 (3) 100 WA


CHÂTEAU LA MISSION HAUT-BRION 1982 PESSAC-LÉOGNAN. GRAND CRU CLASSÉ ONE OF THE HANDFUL OF PERFECT WINES OF THE VINTAGE, THE LA MISSION STILL POSSESSES A REMARKABLY DENSE RUBY/PURPLE COLOR WITH ONLY A SLIGHT GARNET AND LIGHTENING AT THE EDGE. THE FRUIT-DOMINATED AROMATICS REVEAL LOTS OF CASSIS, BLUEBERRY, SCORCHED EARTH, BLACK TRUFFLE, INCENSE, GRAPHITE AND HIGH-CLASS, UNSMOKED CIGAR TOBACCO-LIKE NOTES. STILL EXHIBITING REMARKABLE CONCENTRATION, ENORMOUS BODY, SILKY SWEET TANNIN, AND NO PERCEPTIBLE ACIDITY, THE 1982 REMAINS FRESH, DELINEATED AND SUPER-COMPELLING. A MASSIVE LA MISSION MADE BY THE DEWRAVIN FAMILY AND THEIR WINEMAKERS, ALL OF WHOM WERE DISMISSED THE FOLLOWING YEAR WHEN THE ESTATE WAS ACQUIRED BY HAUT-BRION, THIS MODERN DAY LEGEND SHOWS NO SIGNS OF DECLINE. IN FACT, IT MAY NOT HAVE YET REACHED ITS PEAK. ANTICIPATED MATURITY: NOW-2060+ 100 WA 3 BTS. PER LOT $3,200 - $3,800




Price Realised: $4920
