2000 Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion Bordeaux - 100 Pts!

La Mission Haut Brion is situated in Bordeaux' southern suburb, Talence. From 1919 and until 1983, it was Woltner family, who had owned this property. Under Woltner's reign, La Mission Haut Brion experienced one of its most significant period with a string of excellent vintages and was considered then as fully on the level with First Growths and sometimes even better than these. In 1983, owners of Haut Brion purchased La Mission Haut Brion and today its Jean Philippe Delmas, who's responsible for this property.

There is 20 ha of vines planted with 48 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, vines are on average 21 years old, and the wine spends 20 months in new oak. It's challenging and almost impossible to resist La Mission Haut Brion's fantastic richness, silky structure, extraordinary balance and sophisticated/refined "look". La Mission Haut Brion is irresistible even in average vintages and is famous for a legendary long life of its wines.

Rating RP100 - A superstar of this great vintage the 2000 La Mission Haut-Brion is as profound as the 1989 1982 and 1975. It is more structured and tannic than the 1989 more civilized and refined but not as thick as the 1982 and sweeter as well as purer than the 1975. The 2000 is neither flamboyant nor accessible but what upside potential it possesses! In time one might have to return to the prodigious duo of 1959 and 1961 to find a La Mission with this much potential. While still tight from bottling its inky purple color is accompanied by extravagantly sweet aromas of blackberries blueberries toast scorched earth coffee asphalt graphite and smoke. Super-intense and unctuously-textured with a sumptuous mid-palate and finish this is an explosively rich layered effort that possesses everything I could ever want from a terroir that has given me as much hedonistic and intellectual pleasure as any other wine in the world. It is an amazing achievement for administrator Jean-Bernard Delmas his son Jean-Phillipe and the entire winemaking team. The phenomenal aftertaste goes on for over a minute. RP
