Winemaker Notes

One first notes a normal color, only slightly evolved, and then suddenly one is struck by the complex aromas of this wine. The aromatic volume is amazing. In the mouth it is a wine that first of all is dominated by the Cabernet. The tannins are firm, rather powerful and still hardly assimilated into the ensemble. It is the type of wine that one must wait for. The tannic and aromatic strengths are there. IT is a classic wine of a very good year for the Cabernets. Anticipate this wine to drink well now through 2020.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Fully mature, with a big, fragrant bouquet of damp earth, weedy underbrush, asphalt, Asian soy, and ripe plums and cherries, this medium-bodied 1996 appears to be on a fast evolutionary track. It reveals plenty of delicious fruit, soft tannins and enough acidity to provide definition. I was surprised by how open-knit and mature this wine has become. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.

Wine Spectator
Licorice, blackberry, mineral and cedar on the nose. Full-bodied, chewy texture, with lots of tannins...

Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion, France
Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion Winery Image
In 1664, Madame de Lestonnac bequeathed the domaine of La Mission Haut-Brion to the Peres Lazaristes, a congregation founded by Saint Vincent de Paul. The "good fathers" worked to restore their property to its rightful worth. After them, the Chiapella family (owners in the 19th century) and Woltner family (owners between 1919 and 1983) never stopped improving the vineyard and modernizing the cellars. Since 1983, the Dillon family, already owner of Chateau Haut-Brion, continues the same policy under the presidency of H.R.H. Prince Robert of Luxembourg.
