The Château La Mission Haut-Brion, is a vineyard located in Talence in Gironde. Located in AOC Pessac-Léognan, it is classified Grand Cru in the classification of wines of Graves. The estate was bought in 1983 by the Dillon family, owner of Haut Brion. It is undoubtedly this propensity to give everything at once that distinguishes the wines of La Mission Haut-Brion and seduces many tasters. It is also the exacerbated expression of the soil of Graves of Pessac. In the course of its breeding and getting older, the Mission Haut-Brion is always generous, it is committed totally permanently. The hedonistic side of the Mission Haut-Brion and the permanence of these qualities are features that make it very attractive. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion is the second wine of the domain.
The 1947 (tasted in 1990) was magnificently rich, but the volatile acidity may put off purists. It possessed huge quantities of fruit, as well as a chewy, even viscous texture. It is a great wine.
A wonderful wine. Deep ruby-red garnet color; superb, ripe raspberry aromas; full-bodied, with cassis and raspberry flavors and a silky structure.
