Ch. La Tour Haut-Brion (1.5 L)


WA: The 1975 La Tour-Haut-Brion has consistently been a great wine. As many wine enthusiasts have done, I have made the mistake of drinking it too early. I have only two bottles (from a case and a half) remaining in my cellar. The wine is more developed than La Mission-Haut-Brion, exhibiting a huge, sweet, cedary, tobacco, mineral, chocolatey, smoky, cassis-scented nose and flavors. It is massive and full-bodied, with well-integrated tannin (because of the wine’s sweet, jammy fruit). The wine exhibits good grip and that firm edge found in almost all the 1975s. It is a wine of extraordinary extract and aging potential that should drink well for another 20+ years. Last tasted 10/97
