La Mission Haut-Brion 2023

La Mission Haut-Brion

Case Format: 6x75cl

Drinking Window: 2055.0

Lavishly intense and opulent, Château La Mission Haut-Brion’s characteristic wines are imbued with a rich history that dates back to the 16th century. The property of the Roman Catholic Church, it was repossessed after the French revolution before being auctioned off to its first American owners in the 19th century. Of the 30.7 hectare vineyard, 27 hectares are reserved for red grapes and comprise Cabernet Sauvignon (c.46%), Merlot (c.44%) and Cabernet Franc (c.10%). Its terroir consists of deep gravel over clay, sand and chalk in the topsoil and sees the vineyard placed on two ridges of gravel hills. Situated between the Ars and Peugue stream, the estate experiences moisture even in the hottest, driest vintages. All of these factors contribute towards the creation of a deeply complex, full-bodied wine that is bursting with smoke, tobacco, earth and spice perfumes. A highly tannic wine, Château La Mission Haut-Brion performs best after between 15-25 years of ageing.

CRITIC REVIEWS

94-96
Yohan Castaing

The 2023 La Mission Haut-Brion unwinds in the glass to reveal aromas of ripe red fruits, dark wild berries, spring flowers, burning embers and lilac. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it’s layered and textural with a dense core of fruit underpinned by youthfully firm structuring tannins. This blend of 52.7% Merlot, 29.6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17.7% Cabernet Franc its likely to become fleshier and more enveloping with barrel maturation.

James Suckling

The classy mouth-feel and length to this is really gorgeous, and it seduces you with its texture of fine silk and finesse. Lasts for a long, long time. Medium body with medium, creamy and round tannins and a layered, textured finish. Shows blackcurrants, lead pencil and crushed stone at the end. 52.7% merlot, 29.6% cabernet sauvignon and 17.7% cabernet franc.
