The 2003 La Mission Haut-Brion is a large-scaled wine offering a distinctive bouquet of scorched earth, black cherry liqueur, and hints of blackberries, blueberries, graphite, and smoke. Ripe, heady, full-bodied, soft, and revealing considerable complexity, low acidity, and a broad, expansive mouthfeel, it should drink well in 2-3 years and last for two decades. Robert Parker

Surprisingly not too young. Had a big nose with an even bigger palate. The way I like Bordeaux. Very complex and loads of dark fruit with not too much tannin.

Along with Latour, the best 03 left bank Ive tasted. Excellent aging potential. I can see why Parker didnt like it

2003 in 2015. It's good. But not as good as expected.

Crushed blackberry when just opened then transitioned to dried fruit and smoky wine with asian spicy. Soft tannin, medium body.
