Still a baby- dark purple with no browning. Tobacco and dark red fruits on the nose- the palate is completely primary, very rich and full, but not without elegance- very nice wine.

Ferociously hard from cask, the 1988 La Mission is now exhibiting an attractive opulence and gobs of fruit. It has turned out to be a beautifully made, deep, full-bodied, concentrated, rich, well-structured wine that will last for 15-20 years. It is a bigger, deeper, yet softer, more concentrated wine than its neighbor, Haut-Brion. Anticipated maturity: 1994-2012.

A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Mission Haut Brion, La 3000ml
