CHATEAU LA MISSION HAUT-BRION 2009
CHATEAU LA MISSION HAUT-BRION 2009 from Vinatis UK
Opposite the Château Haut-Brion, the Mission Haut-Brion extends over 30 hectares of vines planted in a gravelly terroir that is slightly richer than that of its famous neighbour. This vintage bewitched us right away with its very deep colour. The nose possesses lovely intensity, bursting through notes of red fruits and vanilla. When tasting it, one can’t help thinking of the 2000 vintage, one of this cru’s finest successes… the wine is unctuous and delicious, with tannins enveloped in mellowness. The balance between power and freshness is sensational… This very great wine was designed to stand the test of time, but this vintage is already a legend!
