Château La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Cru Classé de Graves

Wine Description

A deep garnet core with dark ruby rim. The nose pales against the 2005 as expected, lacking the same degree of intensity and penetration. More sous-bois/tertiary character with a touch of wild hedgerow and even a little mulberry and capsicum. A medium-bodied palate, tertiary personality, good acidity, some oak still unresolved with a bit of a hard landing on the finish. Moderate length.

    Bright medium ruby. Inky aromas of black fruits and licorice. Densely packed but a bit reduced, with flavors of crushed dark berries. Finishes with rather substantial tannins for this wine. As promising a vintage for this second wine as I recall tasting in recent years.
