Bottle report: Excellent condition.

Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2000 is a stunning wine from a great Bordeaux vintage. 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.

"One of the wines of the vintage, the 2000 has barely budged in its evolution since it was bottled and released in 2002. After ten years in bottle, it still reveals a dense opaque purple color along with a potentially sensational bouquet of blueberries, black currants, graphite, asphalt and background oak. Extremely powerful, full-bodied and superbly concentrated with good acidity and high but round tannins, this massive La Mission-Haut-Brion should take its place among this estate’s most hallowed vintages when it hits full maturity in another one to two decades." Robert Parker
