Château La Mission Haut-brion

When the wine is young, the initial sensation is its unctuousness, the softness of a very ripe grape, the freshness of aromas and at the same time the texture of very special tanins. These meld with a trace of mineral in the wine. It is as if the land was in the glass, comprising notes of roasted coffee beans, cocoa and tobacco. This delicate bitterness is somewhat reminiscent of crystallized cherry-stones seeped in spirit. It is certainly a penchant for revealing all its qualities at once that distinguishes the wines of La Mission and pleases a lot of tasters. It is also the consummate expression of the land of the Graves of Pessac. When maturing, this wine is still generous, openly proffering all its qualities. This hedonistic side is one of its most attractive particularities. – Description from JasminaDragoljevic

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 t...

  • A special tasting of Domaine de Chevalier yesterday – Saturday 29 January – at Black Salt in Washington D.C. Although a fish and seafood specialist, Chef Rick Cook impressed 27 participants with some superb meat-based dishes that went very well with one of the most memorable wines of the tasting: a youthful and still tannic 1961 red. Perhaps the... Read More
