La Mission Haut-Brion has made so many great wines over the last 100 years...Certainly it will take its place in the pantheon of all the great La Mission Haut-Brions ever made...Opaque purple in color, with an extraordinary nose of blueberry liqueur intermixed with camphor, charcoal, hints of burning embers and truffles, and loads of black berry and black currant fruit, the wine has sublime concentration and purity, a finish that goes well past 60 seconds, and not a hard edge to be found in this sumptuous, almost over-the-top, full-bodied wine of enormous power and massive density and richness. An immortal effort, it should drink well for 50-100 years! Anticipated maturity: 2010-2110. Robert Parker

Restrained and classic. Great depth but very wound up at the moment. Needs 10-15 years before revisiting. Tannins very firm, but this should go the distance. Great reflection of the finesse that can be shown in 2009, rather than pushing too far on ripeness.
