    Description

    Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 1989
    Pessac-Leognan
    Bottle (1)


    "This is a profound bottle of La Mission-Haut-Brion with a deep ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of espresso, tar, tobacco, mineral, and blackberry, blueberry, and black currant fruit. The extraordinary smorgasbord of aromatics is matched by a full-bodied, viscous, opulent style of wine with sweet, jammy fruit yet enough tannin and acidity to provide uplift and definition. Still somewhat of an adolescent in terms of its development, and far less evolved than its gorgeous sibling, the 1990, this is a prodigious, multi-dimensional wine that is a modern-day legend." (100 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 4th Ed., Jan. 2003)


    Estimate: $800 - $1,100.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
