2005 La Mission Haut BrionBordeaux, France
|Producer||:||La Mission Haut Brion|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||RP100 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate||Tasting Note||:||The 2005 La Mission Haut-Brion is pure perfection. It has an absolutely extraordinary nose of sweet blackberries, cassis and spring flowers with some underlying minerality, a full-bodied mouthfeel, gorgeously velvety tannins (which is unusual in this vintage) and a long, textured, multi-layered finish that must last 50+ seconds. This is a fabulous wine and a great effort from this hallowed terroir. Drink this modern-day legend over the next 30+ years. Only 5,500 cases were produced of this blend of 69% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc.|
