Château La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Ratings on Delectable

The sister property of Haut-Brion and a wine many consider an unofficial 1st Growth, La Mission was firing on all cylinders this night. The 2000 nose was classic, showing the signature Graves scorched Earth, ripe currants, creme de cassis, and roasted coffee beans. The palate built around a core of earth and rock, with a structured and textural powerhouse that relents in the glass as you taste it further, unwrapping the aroma and flavor kaleidoscope slowly and keeping you coming back for more. The 2005 was more of the same but on another level of density and strength being a younger wine and also from an excellent vintage worthy of at least 5 -7 more years before I would go at it again. The nose hinted to a deep future, with the palate clamping down and not showing any signs of relenting that night. #lamission #hautbrion #graves #bordeaux #wine

A very seductive example of la mission. Texturally alluring and velvety. Hopefully more aromatics to come in the future.

Rich and ripe, but delicious anyways. Plummy dark fruit, enough acid to balance.

De-F’n-licious. From mag at dinner post Potel tasting. Just an epic, gorgeous, substantive wine. Run don’t walk.
