Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion 2009 is a stunning wine from a great Bordeaux vintage, rated 100 points by Robert Parker. La Mission is luxuriously rich, intense and powerful. It is drinking beautifully well now, but promises so much more with bottle age.

The Graves' premiere appellation of Pessac-Léognan was one of the stars of the Millennium vintage, where harvesting took place in perfect conditions. The best wines were richly textured, concentrated, fat and well structured with lusciously sweet fruit.

”A candidate for the wine of the vintage…stood out as one of the most exceptional young wines I had ever tasted from barrel, and its greatness has been confirmed in the bottle…it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a magnificent bouquet of truffles, scorched earth, blackberry and blueberry liqueur, subtle smoke and spring flowers. The wine’s remarkable concentration offers up an unctuous/viscous texture, a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, sweet, sumptuous, nearly over-the-top flavors and massive density. Perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime La Mission-Haut-Brion, the 2009 will take its place alongside the many great wines made here…” Robert Parker
