Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2016 is a concentrated red wine with a complex nose full of minerality, aromas of violet flowers and a background of ripe black fruit. On the palate it is voluminous and fresh in equal parts. A precise, medium-bodied wine with tannins so supple and agile and acidity so balanced that it is almost total perfection.

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Château La Mission Haut-Brion is a wood-aged red wine made by Château La Mission Haut-Brion with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot red varieties in the prestigious AOC Pessac-Léognan denomination, in Bordeaux (France).
 
Haut-Brion is the oldest and smallest Premier Grand Cru classified Château in Bordeaux. Located in the town of Talence, it dates back to the seventeenth century and has belonged to the American Dillon family since 1953. This is a highly thought of winery with high-quality satellite properties like La Mission Haut Brion, La Tour Haut Brion and Laville Haut Brion.
 
La Mission Haut Brion is an exceptional Premier Grand Cru. A wonderful gravel terrace with a sandy-clay subsoil in an unpredictable microclimate that offers surprises year after year and produces very different vintages. The vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture to maintain the natural balance of the terroir and the harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness. 
 
When it reaches the winery, Château La Mission Haut-Brion is traditionally vinified. It begins with fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a constant controlled temperature and with a 15-day vatting. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels before being bottled. 
 
Château La Mission Haut-Brion is an epic wine that has been awarded 100 Parker points in more than 6 vintages. This is a Premier Grand Cru that wonderfully packs power, character and plenty of elegance.
