Tasting Notes La Mission Haut Brion 1995

95+

This vintage is aging at a glacial pace and the tannins are currently more significant than their counterbalancing components of fruit and glycerin. While the word “potential” seems to be the most positive descriptor for this vintage, there are some nagging doubts about whether all the tannins will melt away and the fruit will hold. As in most 1995s, the color remains a healthy dark plum/purple. One of the bigger wines of the vintage, the ripe, powerful Merlot component has buttressed the Cabernet elements, giving the wine plenty of body, tannin and La Mission's classic asphalt, cassis, blackberry, smoky barbecue, meaty notes intermixed with a hint of hot rocks. The 1995 is still a young wine and I am beginning to wonder if this vintage overall will resemble 1975 rather than something with more charm? Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035?.

This has a bright vermilion rim but the nose is surprisingly subdued at first, but then gains a meaty intensity with a few swirls. It never really gets motoring though. The palate is better, masculine like many 1995s have turned out. Good acidity, grainy texture, notes of blackberry, sour cherry, dried blood and tobacco towards the backward finish that could do with a little more depth. Quite dry on the meaty finish where I was expecting just a little more grip. Tasted May 2008.
