    2012 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classe

    Great maturity (liquorice), but also fresh (menthol). Fruits, light cedar add to complex aromas. The high volume brings a certain lightness and ethereal character to this Pessac-Leognan Cru Classe. The 2012 Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion is very powerful, with blended tannins adding a mild impression. Very charming, superb balance and harmony, and incredible length: the trademark of superior wines.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting, the 2012 La Mission Haut-Brion showed brilliantly. It has an intense, floral bouquet with rose petals and strawberry preserve, hints of sous-bois and tobacco gently unfolding in the glass, gaining more earthiness as it aerates in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, broad and spicy with hints of bell pepper suggesting high quality Cabernet Franc. It fans out gloriously with a sustained tertiary finish that completes what is a wondrous La Mission Haut-Brion from Jean-Philippe Delmas and his team. Tasted January 2012.
