Château La Mission Haut Brion 1945 Graves Grand-Cru
Château La Mission Haut Brion is widely regarded as being on par with - and in rare vintages, above - the five prestigious 1st-Growth estates as ranked in the famed 1855 Classification of the Medoc; itself ranked within the Classification of Graves 1959.
The estate is planted with 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc - a ratio to which the wine generally follows with slight vintage variations, tending also to be matured in oak barrels for 18-22 months.
This bottle is from the exceptional 1945 vintage and bears label for importers F.S. Matta Ltd of London.
