Always been a standout of the '88's, such great intensity still showing through, dark berry/undergrowth, 3 bottles opened, all with such consistency, outstanding example.

La Mission Haut-Brion was one one of my favorite Chateaus during our time in Bordeaux. A floral wet leaf, earthy nose lingering with smoke, tobacco and subtle barnyard funk. Dark red brown in color. Black cherry fruit, pencil lead initially on the taste. Tannins are surprisingly still there on the tongue. It finishes with hints of vanilla, cocoa and green veggie.

Once again, time to jump in the wayback machine....Decant 1 hour (decent amount of chunky sediment). An awe-inspiring dark garnet color...little bricking after all these years! On the nose: some barn yard funk starting to blow off, wet earth, smoke, floral, cigar box. Taste: black cherry, pencil lead, vanilla, with a little ending tannic kick...not fading after +30 years!!!
