Wine Description

"A superstar of this great vintage, the 2000 La Mission Haut-Brion is as profound as the 1989, 1982, and 1975. It is more structured and tannic than the 1989, more civilized and refined, but not as thick as the 1982, and sweeter as well as purer than the 1975. The 2000 is neither flamboyant nor accessible, but what upside potential it possesses! In time, one might have to return to the prodigious duo of 1959 and 1961 to find a La Mission with this much potential. While still tight from bottling, ...

    Rating: 91(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 102, May/June 2002 Lovely green-tinged color. Cool, bright aromas of lime, pineapple, mint and minerals. Rich, chewy and full, with lovely flesh and texture. Wonderfully ripe but currently a bit unforthcoming in the middle palate. Finishes very long and ripe, with a honeyed flavor. Higher in alcohol than the 2001, at 14%, but doesn't have the younger wine's sheer grip and flavor extension.
