    Bottle (12)
    "Bright crimson. Very sweet and opulent on the nose - broad and round. Truly magnificent bouquet already although the palate is a bit austere. Tannins quite pronounced and dry fruit. Difficult to mark this wine - just smell it for the moment! Neat, well balanced on the finish. Just needs a little time for those tannins to soften..." (17.5pts JR, June 2008)

    "Complex aromas of scorched earth, minerals, black fruits, lead pencil, and subtle wood accompany this classic, full-bodied, La Mission. It boasts superb purity, an expansive, concentrated mid-palate, and sweet tannin in the long, muscular yet refined finish. This superb La Mission-Haut-Brion, which requires 6-7 years of cellaring, gets my nod as one of the finest La Mission's produced." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #134, Apr. 2001)
