Château La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan, Grand Cru Classé, Bordeaux 1982



Château La Mission Haut-Brion 1982

The register of notes changes as we head to Pessac-Léognan.

This is one of the most open on display, with a warmth to the fruit that showcases cloves and spices full of tertiary end-of-summer-fruit goodness.

A beautiful wine, but just a tiny bit brittle on the finish, this is not quite living up to the pedigree that it has shown on other tastings.

We in fact opened a second bottle, served in a decanter (the rest were all in bottle), but it still remained just a nudge behind the others.

Alc 12.5%
