Origin France, Bordeaux
District Left Bank
Village Pessac-Léognan
Classification Cru Classé

The medium to full-bodied 1999 La Mission Haut Brion is beautifully complex, with notes of cherry liqueur, plums, cigar smoke, fresh tobacco, and scorched earth. This deep, elegant, yet precise wine is cut from the same mold as the 1962, 1971, 1983, and 1985. Though not a heavyweight, it is gorgeously complex, supple, and both hedonistic and intellectual. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2018. Rating: 91-91 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, (Oct 2007)

This bottle is showing less bravura than the one at the La Mission vertical last May. It has a relative, light leafy bouquet with dried herbs, a touch of singed leather, some mint developing with aeration that I hitherto have not noticed. The palate is medium-bodied, grainy entry, nice purity on the entry, firm tannins – good backbone here with a touch of savoury fruit towards the finish that has been shaved of the persistency it exhibited before. Foursquare but very well defined. Excellent. Drink now-2025. Tasted June 2009. Drinking range: 2009 - 2025Neal Martin, 1999)
