2007 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classe
The 2007 Chateau de la Mission Haut-Brion displays a deep purple colour. The nose starts off discreet before revealing alternating scents of raspberry, black berry, Havana cigars, roasted coffee, and wood. The palate is generous and sweet. Chateau Haut-Brion created a fine wine! The vintage requires several year of keep in order to reveal all the finesse of this superior Cru Classe.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2007 La Mission Haut Brion, a candidate for wine of the vintage, exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with notes of melted licorice, blueberries, cassis, burning embers, and charcoal, sweet tannin, medium to full body, a fleshy mouthfeel, and an endearing succulence as well as lushness. Already appealing, it should continue to evolve and drink well for 15+ years. It is a great success for the vintage.
