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. While just a narrow suburban street divides the two properties--both are located within the city limits of Bordeaux--La Mission's wines maintain their distinctive wilder identity: more powerful and more tannic, often displaying a meaty, truffley character with extended time in bottle.

Expert Reviews

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

Deep ruby.  Deep, complex nose of blackcurrant, coffee and fresh herbs. Similarly complex on the palate, offering rich yet fresh flavors of black fruits, aromatic herbs and cocoa along with a hint of violet.  This long, youthfully chewy wine is much bigger than the very good 2008.  Like La Mission, this has improved greatly since the Primeurs, when I probably underrated it by a point or two.  Don't think I'm crazy when I tell you that this wine is very close in quality to some La Missions from lesser vintages of the past.  (ID)
