2007 Ch. la Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

Ch. la Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan
With only 36% of the crop making it into the Grand Vin in 2007, there is 25% less of this wonderfully silky La Mission than in 2006. Made from a higher than normal 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot (the same as Haut-Brion) and 9% Cabernet Franc, it is wonderfully aromatic with exuberant yet elegant black cherry and dark chocolate on the nose. Beautifully-balanced, spicy plum and cassis fruit sits alongside coffee, tobacco and minerals on the palate, supported by fine, supple tannins. This remarkably intense, structured, feminine wine looks set to be one of the sleeping giants of 2007.

Ch. la Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan
"Mid ruby-purple colour. Nose smoky, oaky. Palate has very silky fruit, good depth, spice and freshness. Deep, dark, cherry fruit, cedar spice. Very long, spicy, mineral finish. Finishes light, fresh and easy."

Ch. la Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan
"Only 43% Merlot this year, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc. Much less nose and more acidity than the Chapelle. Lots of acidity on the palate, sure enough, and quite tight and lean on the palate. This doesn't seem a vintage that suits the austere character of La Mission especially well. A bit hollow, and light on the finish."
