Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Until Domaine Clarence Dillon, the owner of Château Haut-Brion, bought its neighbour, La Mission-Haut-Brion in 1984, it had been its greatest, albeit underperforming, rival.

Since the purchase however, and under the legendary Jean-Philippe Delmas, who has been a hugely successful winemaker at Haut-Brion, La Mission has gone on to produce equally sought after wines. It is now the second wine in the Graves’ premier Pessac-Léognan sub-appellation, but in some vintages produces even finer wines than Haut-Brion itself.

La Mission, which is perched on a large gravel bank, specialises in producing good wines even in poor vintages, and is famed for its quintessential Graves style: rich, earthy and full-bodied.

    "One of the bigger wines of the vintage, the ripe, powerful Merlot component has buttressed the Cabernet elements, giving the wine plenty of body, tannin and La Mission’s classic asphalt, cassis, blackberry, smoky barbecue, meaty notes intermixed with a hint of hot rocks." Robert Parker
