Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2014 La Mission Haut-Brion offers bright and vivid scents that immediately captivate the olfactory scenes: black fruit, cedar, pencil box and light, minty aromas. It's much better than its First Growth neighbor. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, very harmonious, and has lovely depth with a gentle grip. This is a sophisticated and entrancing 2014, one of my favorites in Bordeaux. Highly recommended. Tasted blind at the Southwold 10-Year-On tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, March 2024)

Château de Chamirey

La Mission Mercurey 1er Cru Chardonnay

2015 vintage. Probably at its peak. Ripe exotic fruit, buttery, intense and long. Could be mistaken for Meursault or even Sonoma. Lovely. — 8 months ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Cru Classe des Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

2000 vintage. Great fill. Awesome cork. Decanted and tasted after 45 mins and 4 hours. Some sed but not as much as expected. Plenty of sleepy time funk for the first 10 minutes in the decanter. Then, things started to unlock. Medium body. A little bit of everything: spice, richness, tannins, concentration, softness, fruit, earth tones. Phenomenal now and may not improve but wagering that another 3-10 years might just find this at the absolute zenith of the bell curve. There's a reason why this estate is one of my two fave BDX estates. 2.15.24. — 2 months ago

Chateau Grand Traverse

Dry Riesling 2020

Classic dry Riesling, hints of petroleum, lemony citrus and minerals. Aftertaste lingers. Around here it’s hard to find dry Riesling which is always a pleasure to discover a good one. — 5 months ago
