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

91-94 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012

(55% cabernet sauvignon, 34% merlot and 11% cabernet franc; 3.67 pH):  Bright, dark ruby-red. Enticing aromas of strawberry, blackcurrant and white pepper, with a strong mineral overlay.  Dense and rich but also juicy, with pure mineral and dark berry flavors and a delicately peppery element.  The finish is pure and long.  This La Mission seems almost too open today, but there's plenty of structure to support its fruit and acidity.  Another classic vintage for this property.
