1982 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Pessac Leognan (From Private Cellar)
International Wine CellarGood full medium red. Exotic yet lively aromas of roasted plum, marzipan and grilled nuts. Wonderfully dense but sappy, with grip of steel. Finishes powerfully tannic and extremely long, still with a touch of youthful austerity. A very impressive showing. Drink 2005 to 2025.
