CHÂTEAU LA MISSION HAUT BRION
1994 Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan
|Grapes||Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc|
This vintage again demonstrates what an extraordinary terroir La Mission-Haut-Brion possesses. It was not an easy year, with rain, flowering issues and uncooperative weather in the critical months of August and September, but the vineyard’s superb drainage and La Mission’s ability to produce fascinating aromatics even in difficult vintages triumphs again. Classic Graves aromas of charcoal, scorched earth, red and black fruits, truffles, graphite and melted tar emerge from this dark garnet/plum-colored 1994. In the mouth, there is some angularity and rustic tannins remaining, but they are not out of balance. With medium to full body as well as more depth than many of its peers, the wine appears to be close to full maturity. However, with this level of acidity and tannin, it is not likely to fall apart any time soon. Anticipated maturity: now-2025. Drinking range: 2012 - 2025 Rating: 92-92 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Aug 2012)
