2007 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classe
The 2007 Chateau de la Mission Haut-Brion displays a deep purple colour. The nose starts off discreet before revealing alternating scents of raspberry, black berry, Havana cigars, roasted coffee, and wood. The palate is generous and sweet. Chateau Haut-Brion created a fine wine! The vintage requires several year of keep in order to reveal all the finesse of this superior Cru Classe.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at BI Wine Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 La Mission Haut Brion should be considered as one of the wines of the vintage, perhaps even outclassing the gaff across the road! It has an ebullient bouquet with vivid dark berry, cold, warm gravel and undergrowth scents that are very complex and beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, crisp acidity and a very precise structure, with superb tension on the finish. If you are seeking a 2007 Bordeaux, then this would undoubtedly be one of my picks. Tasted February 2017.
