JS99 " I am blown away by the intense iodine and dark fruits and roses on the nose. Full-bodied with very clear and bright fruit. Stoney. Superb quality." JS Jun. 2016
VM97 "There was one younger wine. The 1978 La Mission Haut-Brion is one of the best wines of that decade and did not disappoint. Still youthful and dark in hue, it has that wonderful bouquet of blackberries, gravel and black olive, here displaying a heightened marine/Japanese nori scent. The palate is medium-bodied with dense black fruit, melted tar and pencil lead, a La Mission that responds to aeration as it gains depth and grip, whilst maintaining outstanding delineation. It still comes across quite sweet on the finish, testifying a La Mission that intends to give pleasure for many years to come." NM for VM Nov 2020
RP96 "One of the top ten wines of the vintage, the glorious 1978 is a candidate for “the” wine of the vintage." RP Aug 2012
