Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Leognan

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) Typically Haut Brion has a complex bouquet of ripe fruit, tobacco and mineral, earthy scents. Rich, ripe, medium to full-bodied and well structured. A wine that seems to balance power and elegance, richness and harmony perfectly.

    진한 초콜렛 달콤한 과일향이 피어나고 풍만한 풀바디의 탄닌감과 산도, 미네랄이 조화스럽다. 시간이 지남에 따라 강하게 튀는 배리맛이 쉬라 같이 느껴지는데 약간 균형감이 깨지는 곳 같이 보임. 이것 역시 어무 일찍 오픈했음 적어도 10년 정도는 지나야 제대로 숙성된 풀미흘 만끽할 듯.

    (2000 Vintage) "The 2000 La Mission Haut-Brion is certainly one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage. Its performance was off-the-charts in two separate tastings for this report. Deep blue/purple, with a nose of creme de cassis, floral scents, graphite, and subtle smoke, the wine is pure, deep, sumptuously textured, full-bodied, powerful (although certainly not at the power level of the amazing 2009). This wine certainly transcends its 13% natural alcohol and has the same level of concentration found i...
