The '61 and the '89 are quite good. (1961 is an outstanding year.) The '75 should be drinking well, and should be consumed soon. The '72 Burgundy may be quite good. It was not a great year, but I had a '72 Burg a few years ago and it was really fine.
The other vintages may be serviceable depending on the storage. Though they are not good years.

There's no chaff here, although some of these will be better than others. 1977 wasn't much of a vintage and 67 wasn't great either, but the rest, if properly stored, should vary between fine and outstanding.
If you want to choose one, I'd pick the 61 La Mission.
