(2008 Vintage) Resplendent color of intense red. Complex nose of ripe red fruit accompanied by familiar accents typical of this great estate. This "grand vin" at first somewhat closed on the palate, slowly opens to reveal a great length and finesse of ripe fruit. The dense tannins mesh beautifully. A very fine La Mission Haut-Brion.
