Today, Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion’s wines are widely acknowledged to be on par with the 1855 First Growths – or even above! Interestingly, La Mission Haut-Brion has a habit of winning its illustrious First Growth sibling, Haut-Brion, with its opulence that especially shines in challenging years.
Although hailing from the same winemaking team, the La Mission Haut-Brion is of a contrasting character. Where its sibling is known for its refined elegance, the La Mission Haut-Brion strives to be bigger and bolder. Expect richer tannins and intense fruit flavours amplified by Pessac-Leognan’s signature smokey, spicy and earthy notes. “I compare it to velvet,” explains Prince Robert of Luxembourg, owner of the magnificent Haut-Brion properties.
The 1996 vintage has now reached its prime – just like the young adults heading out to create an unforgettable impression in society. Opening up to notes of licorice, blackberry, mineral and cedar, this 25-year-old full-bodied wine filled with a chewy texture is definitely ready to impress!
Better still, this “ultimate insider’s wine” does not break your bank!
