2005 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classe

La Mission Haut-Brion wines are produced in the Pessac-Leognan appellation, which is located in Graves, a sub region of Bordeaux. The vineyard soils are mainly composed of sand and clay, but also contain gravel.

The 2005 Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion displays a very dense and very dark hue. The nose reveals great precision with superb aromas of red fruits, earth, smoky, and liquorice. The palate offers pleasant concentration and sweetness. This wine is generous, with sublime silky tannins: extremely well-balanced. The Cru Classe from Graves shows extraordinary elegance and beauty: should drink well now or in several decades.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2005 La Mission Haut-Brion is pure perfection. It has an absolutely extraordinary nose of sweet blackberries, cassis and spring flowers with some underlying minerality, a full-bodied mouthfeel, gorgeously velvety tannins (which is unusual in this vintage) and a long, textured, multi-layered finish that must last 50+ seconds. This is a fabulous wine and a great effort from this hallowed terroir. Drink this modern-day legend over the next 30+ years. Only 5,500 cases were produced of this blend of 69% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc.
