It is interesting to note that many 1959s much like the 1982s were maligned for lacking both acidity and aging potential. How does one explain the fact that many 1959s are less evolved as well as richer fresher and more complete than many 1961s?...

1959 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion - 100 pts!

It is interesting to note that many 1959s much like the 1982s were maligned for lacking both acidity and aging potential. How does one explain the fact that many 1959s are less evolved as well as richer fresher and more complete than many 1961s? For example as great as the 1961 La Mission is the 1959 is a richer deeper-colored more concentrated and powerful wine. It needs at least 3-5 more years of cellaring to reach its plateau of maturity. Spicy and super-concentrated with a dense plummy/purple color this young broodingly backward formidably-endowed wine should be at its best before the end of the century and drink well for the first 20-25 years of the next millennium.
