ROBERT PARKER
A bottle of the simply glorious 1955 La Mission Haut Brion - the wine of an exceptional vintage and a 100 point Parker wine.

Merchant bottled and in excellent order for its age - level top shoulder - the reserve is below even that of the FRW bottle (which a) is in poor order and b) of uncertain availability).

Laying in Berlin as it has been for many years, this is a rare chance to get a phenomenal wine at a bargain price. PayPal welcome plus 5% for fees.

Tasted 13 Times With Consistent Notes||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 that ooze with ripe fruit, glycerin, and heady alcohol. 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 decline, so this wine can be safely drunk for 10-15 more years. It is an amazing, complex, superbly well-balanced La Mission-Haut-Brion!
