A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml
At present I would rate the 1995 La Mission slightly ahead of the 1996 only because the 1995 possesses a forward sweet complex more evolved nose. It find it impossible to resist the 1995 s density and richness. Nevertheless the 1996 is an outstanding wine. The color is a dark ruby/purple and the nose offers up roasted herbs sweet blueberry jam and cassis scents intermingled with earth and truffle-like aromas. Round rich and sweet with medium to full body outstanding depth but not the weight glycerin and overall opulence of the 1995 the 1996 should hit its peak in 7-8 years and last for 25.

Full ruby-red. Initially mute nose opened slowly to reveal complex aromas of raspberry plum hot stones tobacco saddle leather and toffee. Really explodes on the palate; lush and minerally with a compelling note of woodsmoke and firm acidity. Wonderful combination of sweetness and vibrancy. Finishes very long and subtle with firm tannins. 92 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
A pure evocation of Graves, Haut-Brion's '98 is all potential energy, a powerful layering of minerals, gravel, plum skin, grape skin, red fruit and game, all compressed within unrelenting tannins. You can see the intensity in the dense black-purple color, and you can taste it in the tremendous red fruit length. for all its power, it remains one of the most elegant wines of Bordeaux. There's no bow to fashion, to international style. Jean-Bernard Delmas looks deep into the vineyard to create this wine and fashions it to develop for 20 years or more.
Haut-Brion leads off at the top of the vintage: A sensational color, a glamorous aroma, a huge wine in the mouth. Its so luscious at its core, then so firmly structured that the finish is jarring. This wine shows all the breed you would expect, then it seems to dry up in the end. The tannins are like chewing on nails - not a bad thing for a young Bordeaux of this stature. But I searched for some indication of freshness in the finish, a quality that lends me comfort when a wine needs as much cellaring as this '95. And I came up with dry rocks rather than traces of fresh fruit. It's built for the long term, and if you trust the center of the wine it should make it.
The 2000 Haut-Brion (a blend of 51% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc) showed incredibly at the tasting, and for me is one of the three or four most prodigious wines of the vintage. A compelling nose of roasted herbs, scorched earth, sweet blueberries, plums, black currants, and a hint of graphite is followed by a deep, layered, sumptuously textured, full-bodied Haut-Brion, but one with extraordinary complexity. This wine seems more evolved and approachable than I had expected it to be at age 10. My window of maturity seven years ago was 2012-2040, but I would change that to 2010-2050.
