Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 17

Tasted blind. Smudgy crimson. Very light nose. Lots of freshness and delicacy before the tannins kick in. Quite edgy and fragile. Drying finish. [07/10/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2032

Vinous – 94

The 2011 La Mission Haut-Brion has a fragrant, perfumed, Margaux-like nose, beautifully defined and revealing hints of cassis and blueberry – a feminine, alluring, very pure bouquet designed to seduce, which it does. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, silky-smooth tannins and near-perfect acidity. The new oak comes on a little strong toward the finish, but it will fully integrate with time. A gorgeous wine in the context of the vintage. [Neal Martin, 16/09/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2040

Robert Parker – 95

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. Jean-Philippe Delmas continues to quietly and authoritatively turn out one great wine after another at La Mission-Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion. [Robert Parker, 01/04/2014]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038
