Château La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

Complex aromas of scorched earth, minerals, black fruits, lead pencil, and subtle wood accompany this classic, full-bodied, La Mission. It boasts superb purity, an expansive, concentrated mid-palate, and sweet tannin in the long, muscular yet refined finish. This superb La Mission-Haut-Brion, which requires 6-7 years of cellaring, gets my nod as one of the finest La Mission's produced. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030. Robert Parker

This was absolutely mind blowing! Dense purple in the glass, graphite and cedar bouquet, layers and layers of silky smooth sweet tannins and blueberry smoke infused fruit. A stunning plush, expansive masterpiece. Wow.

Spellbinding composition of forest floor, cedar, cassis, melted chocolate, and coffee. With fondue at 12,000 feet...perfect

Still young with a ways to go. Very underrated vintage and wine. An outright song compared to recent offerings and almost as good. Sweet dark fruits on the nose, with bright acidity and structure. Classic fruit, leather, tobacco profile. Great stuff, but still needs more time
