I really enjoyed this - I felt like it was bold with dark fruit, and was better slightly chilled. — 5 days ago

Ugh, I'll have to check, might be less than the winery direct pricing from '06/07 when acquired.

Dry, not overly powering, goes with the meal (which was meat heavy). Smoooooth. Un-tannic-y. — a month ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Initial access with Coravin was reflecting the age but about a week after it really showed it’s true potential. Really outstanding but might want to hold onto it for 5-10 years — a month ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Very nice wine from La Mission. Decanted 3 hours which I’d suggest - at cork pop it was a bit woody. Bit less acid than I was hoping, and actually ever so slightly disjointed. But still delicious and just a beautiful pairing with some nice ribeye. Aromatically very nice but the palate could be more together and present. — 24 days ago
