The 2019 La Mission Haut-Brion has a beautiful, floral bouquet with touches of pressed violet infusing the black fruit, exquisite delineation and focus; the new oak is seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins, pixelated, hints of blood orange and graphite towards the beautifully-framed finish that lingers long in the mouth. Exceptional. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2060
