Ch. La Mission Haut-Brion (0.75 L)


NM: A deep garnet core with dark ruby rim. The nose pales against the 2005 as expected, lacking the same degree of intensity and penetration. More sous-bois/tertiary character with a touch of wild hedgerow and even a little mulberry and capsicum. A medium-bodied palate, tertiary personality, good acidity, some oak still unresolved with a bit of a hard landing on the finish. Moderate length. A decent La Mission, workmanlike but austere. This has firmed up over the last few months and should be left 4-5 years. Drink 2012-2020. Tasted May 2008.
