Food Pairings for La Mission Haut Brion Premier
Editorial Reviews for La Mission Haut Brion Premier
Smoky and a bit twiggy and stoney on the nose with red fruit and rust. This is curiously a touch sweet almost on entry the this turns firm and a bit mean for a moment before showing the ripe fruit of the nose again, vacillates between ripe fruit and fairly aggressive mineral notes, and while this is a touch lacking in substance it does promise to develop well if it gains some weight, which I expect it will. 89pts
Found this 2005 maked 50% off, gave it a try, Nice nose, big entry,grapey, with a taste of black fruit, smoke, appealing oak, and solid mid palate with mineral and more fruit, but a somewhat short finish. A very nice wine for under $20, but I wouldn't pay more than that.
Love this wine!
External Reviews for La Mission Haut Brion Premier
Amazingly harmonious, complex and supple, with intense, generous plum, currant, spice, cedar, cherry and anise flavors that have a wonderful sense of finesse and grace. The tannins are intense yet graceful, allowing the flavors to pour through on the finish. Best to cellar until 2001 to 2009.
This is the best Haut-Brion since 1959 and perhaps one of the best Bordeaux we have ever tasted. It has loads of character, packed to the brim with fruit and tannins. A wine for the next century. Enjoyable now, but much better after 1998.
Seductive juice. Gorgeous aromas of crushed berries, tobacco, cigars and cedar. Full- to medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, fruity finish. Very fine indeed. Best after 2005.
In contrast to the 1993's penetrating, upfront aromas, the 1994 is closed aromatically. With coaxing, some truffle-like, sweet, black friut aromas, as well as those of mineral/stones come forward. This spicy, full-bodied, powerful wine is a more masculine, structured effort than the 1993, with a potentially more complex, richer character. It is superbly crafted, beautifully balanced, and as pure as a wine can be. The integration of new oak, acidity, and tannin is commendable. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.
Deep plum, currant, and mineral notes emerge from the concentrated, beautifully balanced, pure 1999 Haut Brion. It seems to be cut from the same mold as years such as 1979 and 1985. There is a hint of graphite in the abundant fruit. The wine is medium to full-bodied, nuanced, subtle, deep, and provocatively elegant. It is made in a style that only Haut Brion appears capable of achieving. The finish is extremely long, the tannins sweet, and the overall impression one of delicacy interwoven with power and ripeness. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.
Jean Delmas is thrilled with what he achieved at Haut-Brion and La Mission-Haut-Brion in 1998. Statistically, the vats that went into Haut-Brion indicates that the 1998 has more to it than wither 1995 or 1996, and comes close (in numbers) to equaling the 1989 and 1990. It is one of the great successes of the vintage. Moreover, it is the paradigm for elegance allied to power. The color is an opaque purple. The nose offers up sweet black fruits intermixed with roasted herbs, pain grillé, and minerals. There is a sensational, plush texture, yet the wine comes across as medium-bodied with multiple levels of flavor, as well as gorgeous ripeness and purity. It possesses fine density, but there is no sense of heaviness or imbalance.
For an Haut-Brion, this is huge. Every characteristic suggests power, from the dark color, through the knock-out perfumes, full of dark, brooding fruits. the flavors are black, intense and ripe. It is a delicious wine, surprisingly ready to drink. And yes, just at the end, there is a small hint of the delicacy and elegance that is true Haut-Brion.
