TASTING NOTES

"As early as its birth, one perceives the smoky aromas, so typical of Pessac. One can only admire the roundness and tenderness that make this wine more accessible than Haut-Brion, but with a less monumental tannic structure." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"The texture to this is very beautiful with chewy yet very polished tannins. Full-bodied, tight and mouth-filling. Starts very slowly and then takes off. Love the energy in this." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 La Mission Haut-Brion is a total knockout. Vertical and powerful, but not at all austere, it exudes class. Fine-grained tannins support the fruit, but they are barely felt, as the wine's balance is so extraordinary. Lifted floral notes and a host of red fruits give the 2016 energy and verve. I can't wait to see how it ages." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Glowing deep crimson. Very intense and ripe. Snazzy and spicy. Polished and racy. Very firm and lots of ripe tannins – very much à La Mission. Super-sophisticated. Inky and fresh and so ripe and confident. A dry style but great. Racy but tannic." JancisRobinson.com
