Château La Mission Haut Brion

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1923

Just when you thought the oldest wine of the night was the 38' FKA Schmitt Pettenthal TBA, this pops up. Again I'll let SC describe the wine again:

Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 1923 was the oldest wine of the pre-auction dinner. Still so fresh with a lovely complex attack, a bit hollow [on the] mid-palate that shows an average vintage, and a long finish with a surprisingly good tannic structure. Stunning!

To add to this, I'd like to say WeinArt did an amazing job sourcing and cellaring this impeccable bottle. Kudos to them!

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Continuing Bordeaux month. This rocks - ripe damson plum and black cherry fills the nose and palate. Streaks of quartz and mineral lead to a lingering finish. This is a beautiful Bordeaux. 2015 vintage on Oct 1, 2019 — 17 days ago

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1959

Tasted blind. Dark tawny. Almost opaque. Notes of dark cherry, cola, soil, rhubarb, cigar, and lots of gravel. Elegant in the mouth. You know it’s special juice from a great year. I guessed 61 LMHB. The 59 HB continues to deliver special experiences. — a month ago

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Tried this about 3 years ago. This was a tough vintage but they did a nice job. Dark red with aromas of black berry fruit and oaky spicy notes. Palate displays blackberry and stewed prune fruit some leather and cacao notes with fine tannins that opened quickly. Finish is medium+, soft with complex ending. Still drinking well. — 18 hours ago

Nice deep fruit. Tannins are evolving but certainly still present. Some dirt/gravel, hints of leather and cedar. Nice acidity and length. Better several hours after opening. — 19 days ago
