NEW RELEASE En Primeur Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 2016, Case of 12x75cl IB

En Primeur Chateau La Mission Haut Brion 2016 is available ON ALLOCATION. Please e-mail timothyw@davy.co.uk to enquire re availability

Chateau La Mission Haut Brion is located opposite Chateau Haut-Brion in the Pessac Leognan appellation. Both property are owned by the clareance family.

“The 2016 La Mission Haut Brion is a blend of 57.5% Merlot and 42.5% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 19 September and 14 October, one of the longest ever. “We had to be patient and wait for each plot,” Jean-Philippe Delmas told me. “It took longer than usual.” As is customary, I allowed my sample, and likewise all the wines poured at this tasting, around 40-45 minutes to open since they always transform in the glass. It has a clean and precise, quite understated bouquet with fine mineralité, cold stone aromas infusing the black fruit. This has incredible precision, perhaps even more pixelated than the “gaff over the road” Haut-Brion. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and lithe tannin. I appreciate the line of acidity here, the smoothness and harmony that takes your breath away. Every atom is infused with life-affirming freshness. It is a wine bridled with incredible focus and delineation. I thought that the 2015 La Mission Haut-Brion flirted with perfection. The 2016 has that extra edge, a “je ne sais quoi” that leaves you reaching for the thesaurus looking for superlatives. Drink 2026-2070.” –  98/100pts  Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, April 2017
