There is a distinctive earthiness to this weedy, medium-bodied La Mission-Haut-Brion that still has some tannin to shed. The wine displays a youthful dark ruby/purple color, and sweet cassis fruit in the reticent, still unevolved nose. There is admirable power in this wine that is driven more by its spice and structure than its sweetness of fruit. Still youthful, it should continue to develop and evolve for another decade.

An extremely impressive, yet slightly hard wine; still closed, but could be as great as the 1952. Dark ruby in color and very aromatic, with a rich cherry aromas. Full-bodied, with full tannins and plenty of fruit, yet very closed and tight on the finish.
