Both La Mission-Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion hit home runs in this vintage, which did not produce as many profound wines as the Bordeaux publicity machine suggested. 1989, the 200th anniversary of the French revolution, was an incredibly hot year (surpassed only by 1990 and 2003). Even from barrel the seamless 1989 La Mission revealed a special elixir aspect, tasting like it had been designed by Chanel. It still possesses a blue/purple color with only a hint of garnet creeping in, and the explosive aromatics offer up notes of licorice, creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur, smoky barbecue meats, truffles and graphite. If that’s not enough to get one salivating, the palate has never disappointed either. Full-bodied with extraordinary opulence as well as sweet, well-integrated, velvety tannins, this fresh, lively, blockbuster La Mission appears to be one of those rare wines that never goes through a closed, unfriendly stage. It has been a compelling, multidimensional effort from barrel, in its infancy, and as it heads into late adolescence. A remarkable tour de force in winemaking, it is one of the all-time profound La Mission-Haut-Brions. Anticipated maturity: now-2050.

Tasted at a La Mission dinner. The Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion has flirted with perfection for many years. It has an expressive and generous bouquet with hints of lavender, wild woodland, clove, black olive and warm gravel - one of those heady bouquets that seem to "glow". The palate is utterly sublime with super fine tannins, perfectly judged acidity and a gorgeous tobacco-infused finish that has incredible persistency and complexity. This is just about as good as you could expect from a bottle of wine. Stunning. Tasted November 2013.
