Description

A near-pristine bottle with very good level for age.

Here is Parker's most recent note on the wine, from 2002:
"A wine I completely misjudged early in its life, the 1975 has turned out to be a great wine and one of the top dozen or so wines of the vintage. It actually comes close to competing with the immortal 1975 La Mission-Haut-Brion, one of the most powerful, concentrated wines made in Bordeaux in the last 25 years. The 1975 Haut-Brion shows a dark plum/garnet color, a gorgeously sweet nose of singed saddle leather, scorched earth, tobacco, herb, red as well as black currants, plum, fig, and creosote. Very full-bodied, intense, with noticeable but sweet tannin, this layered, full-bodied wine is very opulent, rich, with striking aromatics. It is a fabulous effort in a vintage that has lost considerable support form Bordeaux wine enthusiasts. This is one of the exceptions. Anticipated maturity: Now-2025. Last tasted, 11/02."

And here are the three most recent Cellartracker notes:

"11/4/2014 - ROSSI.WINE WROTE: 94 Points
Great depth to the nose, dark fruit, pencil shavings, spices, wood, tobacco. Very classic and elegant, slightly drying, good freshness, great drive and structure. Great length. 93-95"

11/4/2014 - PAPIES WROTE: 92 Points
5 Decades of Haut Brion, with James Handford MW (Handford Wines, London):
"Brownish in colour with light red core. Well secondary on the nose, touch oxidised at times, cigar box, mocca?. Quite vibrant still with a lot more fruit than expected and this along the 1970 (Papies 93) would make for great experiences for lovers of classic well aged Bordeaux. Very nice wine. Drink now"

10/26/2014 - SOBOLEV LIKES THIS WINE: 95 Points
"From magnum; still incredibly youthful, could last another 10 years or even more; tertiary notes on the nose, very clean palate showing gamey and balsamic notes; pure class and elegance, tannins fully resolved, pure pleasure"
