I have virtually no tasting notes on older vintages of Haut-Brion Blanc. Other than that, this is a wine one rarely ever sees because of the tiny production.

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. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Mission Haut Brion, La 6000ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker gives this world renowned wine 100 points and writes: "The greatest La Mission Haut Brion made between the 1975 and 1989, the 1982 is, stylistically, a dead-ringer for the ethereal 1959. One of the most massive wines of the vintage, it remains an adolescent in terms of evolution, but it can be drunk with great pleasure if it is decanted 2-3 hours in advance. A thick, unctuously-textured wine with massive richness as well as abundant notes of black fruits, truffles, creosote, scorched earth, smoke, and camphor, a colossal mouthfeel, a layered texture, incredible depth of fruit and glycerin, and copious, but well-integrated tannins that are largely concealed by the incredible amount of fruit. An old school La Mission, it is a tour de force that should continue to age effortlessly for another 40 years. A monumental wine! Release price: ($245.00/case)
