    ($100-$140) Deep red-ruby. Bright aromas of dark fruits, licorice, rocks and leather, lifted by a light peppery nuance. Dense and broad, with a creamy, seamless mid-palate texture and a restrained sweetness. Finishes with fine, broad tannins and noteworthy persistence. With its very fresh style, this comes across as a bit more delineated today than the 2005 Haut-Brion. An excellent showing.

    ÿMellifluous and round and fresh and lively. Dry finish and really revitalising.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Aromas of fruit and spices, with black pepper and cumin and undertones of forest floor. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit, a silky texture and a medium-to-long finish. 7,500 cases made.

    While La Mission Haut-Brion's 2004 is not one of this estate's top successes, it is an outstanding wine, no doubt because of this extraordinary terroir. Deep ruby/purple with notes of lead pencil shavings intermixed with black cherries, cassis, and a hint of scorched earth, medium body, sweet tannin, and a good, but uninspiring finish, this attractive, mid-weight La Mission should age nicely for 15 or more years.

    Remarkably elegant wine, wins you over w/ finesse every sip (ignore the fact that this is supposed to be the powerhouse of Graves, the proprietors utilized Mother Nature?s gifts to their best ability in 2004 and it is certainly representative in the glass). Dried porcini mushrooms, high class tobacco smoke, cocoa and blackberry fruit are remarkably long and pure in a seamless texture that evokes the ethereal qualities of an aged red Burgundy. Slightly edges out the Pape Clement in singularity, but not by much!

    too much wood taste.

"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.
