Description

2018 Château La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc,
Pessac-Léognan AOC, Château La Mission Haut-Brion  

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting, the 2012 La Mission Haut-Brion showed brilliantly. It has an intense, floral bouquet with rose petals and strawberry preserve, hints of sous-bois and tobacco gently unfolding in the glass, gaining more earthiness as it aerates in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, broad and spicy with hints of bell pepper suggesting high quality Cabernet Franc. It fans out gloriously with a sustained tertiary finish that completes what is a wondrous La Mission Haut-Brion from Jean-Philippe Delmas and his team. (NM) 

Jeb Dunnuck: 97/100
Continuing to show brilliantly, the 2012 La Mission Haut-Brion is a quintessential Graves, boasting a deep purple color as well as heavenly aromatics of blackcurrants, tobacco, scorched earth, graphite, and licorice. It’s a big, full-bodied beauty yet has a weightless, elegant style, building tannins, and a great finish. It needs a solid hour in a decanter if drinking today and promises to evolve beautifully for another 3-4 decades. 

Jancis Robinson:
Tasted blind. Straightforward crimson. Very aromatic and then sweet and flattering. Still quite edgy tannins there in abundance, with the fruit only just trumping them. Long and impressive with just a hint of dark chocolate on the finish. Pretty smart with a long way to go. Very sweet but vibrant.
