La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 1955

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Even allowing for the greatness of Haut-Brion and Mouton-Rothschild, the 1955 La Mission is the wine of the vintage. It possesses a sweet, cedary, clove, smoke, and black-raspberry-scented nose, and rich, full-bodied, remarkably harmonious flavors ... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1955 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml

The tannin has totally melted away and the wine reveals considerable rust at the edge so it is unlikely that the 1955 will improve with further cellaring. There is no indication of any fragility or declin
