(05-2008) Double decanted decanted. This new tasting (the third) confirms that this vintage of Mission Haut-Brion tastes particularly well today. She also reveals to us that just because a Bordeaux begins its life firmly does not mean that it never acquires softness. This wine, which I remember very well having a fairly energetic profile in its youth, is proof of this. The color is dark, intense and still young. Superb creamy and fruity nose. He smells of blackcurrant, smoke. It conquers me with its pure note. In absolute terms, it looks more like Pomerol than Pessac-Léognan. Fat, slender and fleshy on the palate, but on a straight body that is more than wide. It’s quite astonishing. The wine is revealed after the mid-palate where it becomes tasty and ends very long on tannins without harshness. Delicious to drink right now. It will probably be kept for a long time.

(05-2008) A deep garnet core, very clean. This has a glorious, very pure and beautifully defined nose with the austerity of ’88 claret but with much more fruit intensity than others. Lovely tobacco scents, cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied, understated, beautifully balanced with great precision and focus. Good acidity lending this Mission such vivacity with just that right degree of dryness on the finish to urge you to take another sip. A lovely La Mission and I bet a relative bargain compared to other vintages. Drink now-2020+. Tasted May 2008.

Tom Cannavan (01-2008) Very deep, solid colour. Lovely melange of camphor, cedar and that ashy minerality with keen-edged black fruit. The palate has delightfully racy structure, with fresh, but dense and meaty black fruit and a supple, supportive tannin structure. There is masses of toasty, coffeeish oak in the finish, but the balance here, with spiciness and acidity, is excellent.

Château informations
Mission Haut Brion
Mission Haut Brion

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 greatest vintages: 20001994199319901989198819861985198219811979, 1978, 19751964, 1961, 19591955195319521950, 1949, 194819471945, 1929.
