Description

    Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 1990
    Pessac-Leognan
    1bsl, 2nl, 1wisl
    Bottle (2)


    "One of the hottest years in Bordeaux, 1990, a vintage of enormous yields, even dwarfing yields in 1985 and 1982, produced a fabulously open-knit, seemingly fast track La Mission that, at age 22, shows no signs of fading or losing its grip. The color is slightly more mature and evolved than the 1989’s, exhibiting a lighter rim and a less dark blue/ruby/purple hue. Classic La Mission-Haut-Brion aromatics of camphor, licorice, scorched earth, hot bricks, barbecue, cassis, blueberry and kirsch are well displayed. Broad, expansive, velvety-textured and opulent..." (99 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #202, Aug. 2012)


    Estimate: $850 - $1,200.
