Tasting Notes

89
Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

Sweet, mature nose. Very low key but succulent. Lively. Real personality here. Rather old fashioned but very well balanced. Minty again.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, March 2006

A separate vineyard adjoining (and made by) La Mission Haut Brion. "Opulent aromas of currants, chocolate and toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Beautiful, rich wine." WS.
