Description

    Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 1985
    Pessac-Leognan
    6bn, 3ts, 1vhs
    Bottle (11)
    "The 1985 is deliciously opulent, rich, and open knit. The color is a dark ruby/purple with some garnet at the edge. The wine offers a sweet, smoky, melted road tar, black currant-scented nose with toasty oak in the background. It has put on weight as it has evolved in the bottle, and appears to be better than ever, with copious quantities of lush, jammy black fruits intermixed with the smoky, roasted character so prevalent in this appellation. The low acidity and loosely-knit, medium to full-bodied, fleshy character make for delicious drinking." ( 92pts, Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Ed., Jan 1998)

    "A complex, smoky, earthy nose, with a bit of camphor intermixed with jammy black currants and melted road tar is followed by a medium-bodied, very soft, low-acid wine that is loosely knit, very fleshy, and fully mature." (91 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 4th Ed. , Jan. 2003)
