Tasting Notes

Believed by many experts to be worthy of a Premier Cru Bordeaux status, Château La Mission Haut-Brion was established in 1533 by Jean de Pontac, the then-owner of what in time became Château Haut-Brion. Similar to its Premier Cru neighbour, the quality of the wines produced are exceptional and incredibly long-lived, making them much sought after by collectors and investors.  Over the years it was always the chief challenger to Haut-Brion itself, until in 1983 the Dillon family, who owned Haut-Brion, purchased La Mission as well. A unique stony soiled micro-climate with grape varieties of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, produce a fuller, more concentrated and tannic style than that of Château Haut-Brion. This particular release, from the excellent 1995 vintage, is a great example of this producer's inimitable style; muscular and intense with fine structure and great potential to improve. Restrained and brooding on the nose, aromas of blackberry, graphite, cedar, tobacco and olives are all suggested. Full and deep in the mouth with savoury flavours and a beautiful balance, whilst youthful this is still a beautiful claret to drink now. Sensationally long on the finish, this famous release deserves decanting and a plate of roast lamb to compliment.
