Medium red-ruby. Black cherry, licorice, minerals, mint and violet on the nose. Then almost creamy in the mouth, delivering sweet flavors of dark berries, minerals and candied violet. Some tangy red berry notes emerge with aeration, providing lift and focus, but there's an enticing plumpness of texture here. Finishes with very good length and lift, lovely balance and plenty of early appeal. (ID)

About This Producer


"What is still evident is that La Mission Haut-Brion is a wine of first-growth quality...It is unquestionably one of the world's most singular and distinctive wines." -Robert Parker, Bordeaux

Founded in the 17th century, this property has long enjoyed renown and respect. In 1919, the Woltner family acquired the estate and set it on the road to stardom. Frederic Woltner, and then later his son Henri, shaped the dense, full-bodied, fruit-rich character that was to become this chateau's signature. Then, in 1983, amidst family bickering and financial woes, the chateau was purchased by Haut-Brion (Domaine de Clarence Dillon S.A.) and Jean Delmas was placed at the winemaking helm. Considered one of Bordeaux's greatest wines, Mission Haut-Brion, with patience, provides a sumptuous and lengthy tasting experience. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is the estate's second wine.
