2013 Bordeaux 24/4 – Haut Brion, La Mission, & Co

by Charles Lea

Today sees the release of the Haut Brion stable, including the highly prized whites of both la Mission and Haut Brion which, if they are of interest to you, need snapping up.

Haut Brion聽itself is the same price (拢2470)聽as Margaux and Mouton, but is the closest to other vintages available in the market. La Mission has come down a long way from the prices of the last four vintages, but then the market has regarded the prices of the last four vintages with increasing disbelief, so it rather needed to. Clarence is the cheapest second wine of a First Growth available in the market, but it is also the one with little following in the market that is crucial for these wines: China. La Chapelle de la Mission and Haut Brion’s Saint Emilion Quintus and its second wine Dragon are also available, but again have yet really to develop a following.
