“A great La Mission can be a religious experience”

Château La Mission Haut-Brion met zijn 30,7 hectare Awijngaarden is sinds 1983 in handen van de familie Dillon. Het ligt aan hetzelfde smalle straatje als waaraan Château Haut-Brion (van dezelfde familie) gelegen is en de poorten tot de beide estates liggen op korte loopafstand van elkaar. Het zal u dan ook niet verbazen dat het terroir praktisch hetzelfde is, hoewel Haut-Brion net iets meer grind heeft.

La Mission Haut-Brion wordt door velen gezien als ‘de zesde’ 1e Grand Cru Classé van de 1855 classificatie. Ook Jane Anson (Inside Bordeaux) noteert: ‘This is a wine that I would make a First Growth if the 1855 classification were not only to be re-drawn, but also expanded outside of the Médoc (so two possibilities). Its character is different to Haut-Brion, but shares the exceptional range of subtle yet striking aromatics.’ We gaan er maar niet vanuit dat die nieuwe classificatie er na al die jaren ooit gaat komen, maar één ding is zeker: La Mission Haut-Brion behoort tot de absolute top van Pessac én, sterker nog, van heel Bordeaux.

Toonaangevend criticus Neal Martin van Vinous schreef eerder lovend over La Mission: ‘A poor La Mission is still a better wine than most; a good La Mission is a great wine and a great La Mission can be a religious experience.’

One of the finest wines in the vintage, the 2023 Château La Mission Haut-Brion is based on 52.7% Merlot, 29.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc. It's one hell of a gorgeous wine offering a massive nose of black raspberries, graphite, liquid flowers, scorched earth, and chocolate-like aromas and flavors. It delivers remarkable purity, full-bodied richness, no hard edges, and fine-grained, sweet tannins. The overall balance paired with opulence here is something to behold, and it’s incredible to find this level of quality in the vintage.

The classy mouth-feel and length to this is really gorgeous, and it seduces you with its texture of fine silk and finesse. Lasts for a long, long time. Medium body with medium, creamy and round tannins and a layered, textured finish. Shows blackcurrants, lead pencil and crushed stone at the end. 52.7% merlot, 29.6% cabernet sauvignon and 17.7% cabernet franc.

A blend of 52.7% Merlot, 29.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 17.7% Cabernet Franc, La Mission Haut-Brion 2023 has a pH of 3.7 and a deep garnet-purple color. It slowly emerges from the glass with fragrant notes of ripe plums, boysenberries, and Morello cherries, opening out to a wonderfully evocative nose of Indian spices, fragrant soil, iron ore, and rose oil. The full-bodied palate is laden with ripe, opulent black fruit and exotic spices layers, lifted by red berry accents and ferrous sparks, framed by velvety tannins and finishing with epic length.

A generously scented nose, very floral and perfumed, lovely high aromatics and fully expressive. Blue fruits, red cherries and some plum. Weighty and full, this really leaves a lasting impression on the palate, juicy but not too much, a tiny hint of sourness in the back gives the zing while the structure and the tannins do most of the talking, really putting the structure at the fore with a powdery, chalkiness that lingers. It’s serious, but in no way austere. Weighty but still streamlined. Chocolate, cherry and blackcurrant, feels very calm and confident, polished and sophisticated. It’s not trying too hard and feels settled in the glass. Delicious. 3.8pH. 4.4 acidity. 80 IPT. 47% grand vin production.

The 2023 La Mission Haut-Brion unwinds in the glass to reveal aromas of ripe red fruits, dark wild berries, spring flowers, burning embers and lilac. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it’s layered and textural with a dense core of fruit underpinned by youthfully firm structuring tannins. This blend of 52.7% Merlot, 29.6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17.7% Cabernet Franc its likely to become fleshier and more enveloping with barrel maturation.
