2008 Château La Mission Haut-Brion, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan

Dark and brooding. Ripe damson and black cherry fruit, powerful and intense. Rich sweetness on the attack. Concentrated and, while supple textured through to the mid-palate, incredibly mineral, with graphite purity and intensity through to the finish. Tannins are strongly fruit-derived, yet powerfully mineral and the wine is carried to a very long finish by a fine acidity. Fruit purity, minerality and controlled power. Robert Parker: 94-96+
