La Chapelle De La Mission Haut-Brion 2004

88+ points

Pessac-Leognan. 12.5%

2nd wine of La Mission Haut-Brion.

Pristine wine with lovely balance, rather stylish. Interesting deft use of oak. So it advertises the quality of winemaking at La Mission very well but does it tell me much about the grand vin? Not really. The fruit here is either closed or not super exciting. So I’m none the wiser to the La Mission style or to where this wine is going. I’m going to guess that this will be very nice stylish drinking from 2012.
