Winemaker Notes

Very deep, dark red color with mauve highlights. The intense nose has opened up to reveal hints of black cherry and blackberry as well as spice. The bouquet is very "La Mission." The wine starts out broad-based, soft, and tasty. It then spreads out seamlessly with a show of powerful tannin and a creamy middle palate. The tight tannic structure on the finish is supported by a very fine aromatic persistence. Once again, La Mission Haut-Brion is very open at this stage, very expressive, and quite obviously a great wine.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The small production (4,150 cases) of 2011 La Mission-Haut-Brion displays the nobility and complexity of this great terroir. Burning embers, scorched earth, blueberry, black currant, licorice and spice aromas jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored wine. With full body (atypical for a 2011), but no hard edges, this opulent, multidimensional, fleshy, rich, stunningly long, well-balanced La Mission is another great achievement in what has been nearly a century of producing remarkable wines from this hallowed vineyard. The long 2011 should be reasonably mature in another 4-6 years, and last for two decades. It will always be a revelation in a vintage that is unlikely to receive a lot of exciting press. The final blend was 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, and 11% Cabernet Franc.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
An impressive wood- and tannin-laden wine, with intense, solid fruit. It’s powerful, very dry and complex.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points
WS 93
Wine Spectator
This sports a pleasantly grippy edge of briar and cassis bush notes, with a densely layered core of dark fig, blackberry and black currant fruit that should move to the fore soon enough. The long, mesquite-tinged finish has solid grip. Best from 2016 through 2030.
JS 93
James Suckling
A wine with pretty dark-chocolate, berry and currant character. Stones, too. Full body, chewy but polished tannins and a firm finish. Already showing the sea shell and iodine. Needs at least four or five years to soften. Reminds me of the excellent 1978.

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.
