Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion 2012

Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion 2012
Pessac-Léognan, GCC
Fine depth of colour and has the earthy/Graves nose of La Chapelle but a better expression of fruit, very polished and ripe due to 62% Merlot, but time is needed to dominate the fine but rather firm tannins. 17.5/20pts ( 91/100pts)
Drink: 2017 - 2030
Taster: Steven Spurrier
