Château la Mission Haut Brion, Pessac-Léognan 1983

Mission Haut Brion 1983

Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines, New York NY.

Thirty five years on.

Ruby.  Woodsy, like old leaves and tree bark after the summer rain.  Cutting, firm, markedly smoky.  The blackberry and toasted almond palate is a blazing force at the skin and the finish is a flame of Graves’ gravelly terroir.  Now – 2025+.
