About Chateau La Mission Haut Brion

Once a rival of the adjacent Chateau Haut-Brion, La Mission has actually shared ownership with its neighbor since 1983.

Expert Reviews

97(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

Bright, deep ruby.  Brooding, complex cabernet sauvignon-dominated nose of uncommon depth, offering notes of cassis, cigar box, minerals, cedar and dry herbs.  Extremely pure and fresh, with massive but still totally unevolved flavors of blackcurrant, dark plum and minerals.  I love this wine's impeccable balance and smooth, tactile finish.  A monumental La Mission with outstanding persistence.  (ID)
