(2010 Vintage) The very deep colour of the wine is indicative of its concentration. The bouquet is very expansive, redolent of red-berry fruit. On the palate, this wine has an astonishingly imposing tannic structure for a second wine. It is also dazzlingly fresh, despite its impressive concentration.
Got this wine from my father. This is one of the best year for La Mission Hant-Brion. Score 100/100 from RB several times. Plum and dark berry nose right out of the bottle. Full body with oak herbaceous aftertaste. Tannin is velvet smooth. Love this wine , cheers.
