  • EYE: The visual examination reveals a depth of color unparalleled, even for a vintage as venerable as 1982. The intense ruby red, adorned with amber nuances, highlights the concentration and maturity of this exceptional wine, magnified in the magnum format, housed in the Palais de L'Élysée Cellar.
  • NOSE: The aromatic bouquet unfolds with impressive subtlety, revealing a complex array of aromas that have evolved with grace over the decades. Notes of blackcurrant, tobacco, and truffle harmoniously intertwine, creating an olfactory symphony of historical richness.
  • MOUTH: This magnum reveals a controlled opulence. The deep flavors of blackberry, licorice, and precious wood express themselves with refined intensity. Silky and well-integrated tannins confer a structure that withstands time, while the subtle acidity brings surprising freshness.

 

In short: The Château La Mission Haut-Brion 1982 in magnum format, coming from the Palais de L'Élysée Cellar, with its rare intensity in color, evolved aromatic bouquet, and opulent palate, promises optimal aging for another 5 to 15 years.

Iconic wine estate in Bordeaux

 

Château Haut-Brion, located in the Graves region, is the ancestor of all the grands crus. The story begins in 1525, when Jean de Pontac, officer of the Bordeaux Parliament, acquired Haut-Brion. Jean de Pontac and his descendants succeeded in producing a new type of wine, well known in England under the name of "New French Claret".

This wine was met with great success, although it was Count Joseph de Fumel, a De Pontac descendant, who brought fame and glory to the estate in the 18th century. After the revolution the estate passed from hand to hand, to arrive in 1935 in the hands of Clarence Dillon, an American financier, wine lover. The castle is still in the family, it is now run by his grandson, the Prince Robert of Luxembourg.

The vineyard covers an area of 48 ha, is located on the outskirts of the city of Bordeaux. The vineyard is planted on gravelly soils with clay subsoil. The vineyard is composed of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. A small area of less than 3 ha is planted to 52% in Semillon, 47% in Sauvignon and in 1% Petit Verdot.
