2005 Château La Mission Haut-Brion, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

2005 Château La Mission Haut-Brion, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

In this vintage La Mission comprises 69% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remaining 1% is Cabernet Franc. Very dense in appearance, certainly opaque. The aromas here reveal blackcurrant and mulberry, hedgerow fruits. The palate shows a lovely core of tightlywound fruit in a similar vein, with a complex leafy edge, layered and refined but certainly expansive. The concentration impresses as does the balance. The tannins are fine and well-veiled by the creamy-nuanced fruit. There is an earthy mineral quality here too and a lasting impression of ripe fruit. Terrific length - a very fine La Mission.
