Description

Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2016 is a popular Bordeaux red wine – with a classic Bordeaux blend. Frequently the qualitative equal of sister-Chateau Haut Brion and in some years even better. La Mission’s production levels are now smaller than ever and, more than ever, it can be seen as an ‘honorary’ First Growth.

99 Points, Neal Martin: “The 2016 La Mission Haut-Brion was stunning from barrel, and now in bottle. It has a sublime bouquet of blackberries, briar and hints of dark chocolate and rose petals that gain intensity with aeration while maintaining ethereal delineation. It never steps on the accelerator too hard. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is still a veneer of new oak that will need to be assimilated over the coming years. This is a deep La Mission that caresses the mouth. Touches of graphite lingering on a finish that fans out gloriously. Is the 2016 up there with the 1955 or 1989? Nearly. Drink 2026-2066.”

97 Points, James Suckling: “Regal wine, showing alluringly ripe and dark plums, that carries a wealth of complexity in its DNA – fine spices, leaves, graphite, violets and more. The palate has very precise drive and super focused style and delivers authoritative tannins that are arranged in linear fashion. Power with elegance.”
