When I did my original tastings of the 1974s, the three wines that stood out in that mediocre vintage were Latour, Trotanoy, and La Mission-Haut-Brion. The 1974 is still very alive, and has at least another 7-10 years of aging potential. It remains a tougher, more sinewy style of La Mission-Haut-Brion, but exhibits an excellent deep, dark garnet color, a big, mineral-scented, smoky, earthy, spicy bouquet, medium to full body, very hard tannins, and very good flavor depth, particularly for a 1974. No doubt the deep guaunzian gravel and subsoil of La Mission's vineyard resulted in this wine's turning out to be one of the successes of this rain-soaked vintage.

Mission Haut Brion

The Château La Mission Haut-Brion, is a vineyard located in Talence in Gironde. Located in AOC Pessac-Léognan, it is classified Grand Cru in the classification of wines of Graves. The estate was bought in 1983 by the Dillon family, owner of Haut Brion. It is undoubtedly this propensity to give everything at once that distinguishes the wines of La Mission Haut-Brion and seduces many tasters. It is also the exacerbated expression of the soil of Graves of Pessac. In the course of its breeding and getting older, the Mission Haut-Brion is always generous, it is committed totally permanently. The hedonistic side of the Mission Haut-Brion and the permanence of these qualities are features that make it very attractive. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion is the second wine of the domain.
