Château La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

One of the most powerful La Missions ever produced, the 2010, a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, achieved 15% natural alcohol (even higher than the 2009's 14.7%). Nevertheless, the pH is normal which gives the wine an extraordinary precision, freshness and vibrancy despite its massive size. A blue/purple color is followed by a classic nose of blueberry liqueur, creme de cassis, spring flowers and crushed rocks. This monumental, full-bodied, incredibly rich La Mission-Haut-Brion will need a decade of cellaring and should last for 40-50 years. It is slightly fatter and creamier than its sibling rival, the 2010 Chateau Haut-Brion. Robert Parker

Lush extracted blue and black fruit. Cloves new leather over poweres the bouquet. Cassis with mouth watering acidity. Neverending finish !

Sorry guys, I'm a few days behind posting these. This was the first line of the evening on Monday. It was Simply simply awesome! Shared this 100 pointer with our good friend Ted Mandes. It did a great job getting rid of everyone's Monday blues! The bottle was a 2010 Haut Brion and not a "La Mission Haut Brion" as Identified
