|Producer||:||La Mission Haut Brion|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||AG96 - Vinous by Antonio Galloni|
|Tasting Note||:||The 1998 La Mission Haut Brion has always been a quite brilliant wine and at 20 years of age it continues to cruise at high altitude. Showing little signs of ageing in the glass, it has a very pure and refined bouquet that is perhaps not as precocious as a decade ago. This unfolds beautifully with black cherries, black olive, mineral and a touch of cigar box. The palate is very well balanced with a fine thread of acidity. The 1998 remains very youthful and vigorous with a sweet core of fruit, quite linear towards the finish with great tension. You come away with the feeling it will have more secondary aromas and flavours with another few years of bottle age. Marvelous. Tasted at the château.|
