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

$525

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

Nice deep fruit. Tannins are evolving but certainly still present. Some dirt/gravel, hints of leather and cedar. Nice acidity and length. Better several hours after opening.

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.
