La Mission Haut-Brion


98 RP





Still Wine

98 Robert Parker

A candidate for the wine of the vintage from this somewhat forgotten year, consumers should be seeking out wines from the Right Bank and Graves as 1998 was a great vintage in those appellations. La Mission’s 1998 exhibits a healthy, opaque blue/purple color with no lightening at the edge. Thirty minutes of aeration brings forth a sensational bouquet of chocolate, cedar, truffles, graphite, blackberries, cassis and incense. La Mission’s so-called scorched earth/charcoal/hot rocks characteristic has not yet appeared. Full-bodied with superb purity, a multilayered texture, sweet tannin, good acidity and a fabulously long finish, this great, young La Mission-Haut-Brion’s finest days are yet to come. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.


97 Neal Martin

Tasted at Christies' Boardroom dinner from an ex-chateau bottle. This must constitute as one of the wines of the vintage, an all-conquering La Mission Haut Brion with a bright future ahead. The nose is utterly sublime with blackberry, black olive and emerging forest floors scents intermingling with a touch of the old Cohiba cigar. The palate is full-bodied with superb concentration and a very fine line of acidity. It is not as exotic as it was four or five years ago, but there remains wonderful tension right to the very last. This is just beginning to move into a more elegant adolescence. Drink now-2040. Tasted November 2013.
