La Mission Haut Brion 1998, 750mL (WA98) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

La Mission Haut Brion

750mL

Vintage: 1998
Region: France--Bordeaux
Appellation: Pessac Leognan

WA98
Rated 98 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `A candidate for the wine of the vintage from this somewhat forgotten year, consumers should be seeking out wines from the Right Bank and Graves as 1998 was a great vintage in those appellations. La Mission`s 1998 exhibits a healthy, opaque blue/purple color with no lightening at the edge. Thirty minutes of aeration brings forth a sensational bouquet of chocolate, cedar, truffles, graphite, blackberries, cassis and incense. La Mission`s so-called scorched earth/charcoal/hot rocks characteristic has not yet appeared. Full-bodied with superb purity, a multilayered texture, sweet tannin, good acidity and a fabulously long finish, this great, young La Mission-Haut-Brion`s finest days are yet to come. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate
