Château La Mission Haut-Brion, Cru classé 2009

RRP £480

Carnal, sensual, ethereal. The breath-taking nose immediately has your attention, without asking for it. It is sweet, and savoury too, with a touch of meatiness; a smorgasbord of flavours and impressions. On the palate there is imposing, confident, powerful fruit. It might last forever, and certainly shouldn’t be opened yet; in spite of the pleasure today, there’ll be more down the line.
