The second label of Chateau La Mission Haut Brion. A lovely elegant and appealing blend of 56% CS, 39% Merlot, and 5% CF. Delicious and still young, another great example of the nice surprises that the 2008 vintage had to deliver. Full of cassis, earth, chocolate, cedar wood, full body, rich, firm tannins, fruity complex finish. My score 90, drink to 2025

Drinking great but just not all that memorable. Still a very enjoyable wine drinking at peak.

Graphite, dark fruit, damp earth, and light cedar. Would hold for 7-10 more years. A baby now.

The second label of Chateau La Mission Haut Brion. A lovely elegant and appealing blend of 56% CS, 39% Merlot, and 5% CF. Deep red, a lavish nose full of blue berries, violet, black current, coffee and earth, full chewy body, rich and complex, a lovely Bordeaux. My score 89, drink 2014-2021, perhaps longer

Simply stellar but the Dominus edged it out thus evening. However., this was spectacular!! A little barnyard funk and a lot of character!!

2007 Vintage - Earthy and full of floral notes mixed with dire tobacco and spice. Needs 3-5 more years.

Licorice, eucalyptus and tar. Quite grippy on the palate. Drink of hold. Needs food.

Best wine of the tasting. Beautiful example of a Bordeaux. Still has a lot of life left in it.
