Cellar/Tasting Notes "A wine that succeeds in combining great depth of flavor and structure with an impressive array of flavors. On top of the tannins is juicy black fruit, cocoa, a welter of spice and ripeness. The acidity and new wood put the wine into a more modern style."
Cellar/Tasting Notes Great nose of blueberries, spices and hints of walnuts. Full body, with a lovely finish of well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. This is structured yet all in finesse. Best in years.
Cellar/Tasting Notes "The second wine of La Mission Haut-Brion, this is spicy, full of fresh fruits, dominated by blackcurrants and berries."
Cellar/Tasting Notes This is another astonishing effort from this small estate. The 2007 is one of the sexiest, most opulent yet powerfully concentrated wines of the vintage. There is not a hard edge to be found in this voluptuously textured, deep St.-Emilion. Abundant aromas and flavors of chocolate, charcoal,..
Cellar/Tasting Notes The palate is impressive: tightly coiled, honeyed fruit, very fine acidity, linear at first then fanning out across the finish with notes of dried apricot, nectarine, a touch of almond and a faint hint of spice.

Cellar/Tasting Notes A big, powerful Margaux that should age for 20+ years, this inky purple-colored wine exhibits notes of spring flowers intermixed with blackberries, raspberries and cassis. Some lead pencil shavings and toasty oak are also present in this powerful yet at the same time very pure, textured,..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "A blend of 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, this wine, which is made under the administration of Hubert de Bouard, tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Loads of chalky minerality from limestone soils are obviously present in this wine, which has a dense purple color, a viscous, full-bodied..
Cellar/Tasting Notes "...The wine reveals a dense blue/purple color in addition to a bouquet of burning embers intermixed with charcoal, graphite, blackberries, and cassis. Extracted, but not excessively so, and full-bodied, with lots of tannin and structure..."
Cellar/Tasting Notes "Enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel, Full-bodied, very sweet and thick, with honey and caramel flavors. Long and rich, oozing with sweet
ripe fruit, this is like liquid candy."
Cellar/Tasting Notes A brilliant nose here, a touch more marmaladey botrytis richness than some, with sweet oranges and pineapple, all presented in a very bright and fresh style. The palate is just beautiful, elegant, just dancing along. There is richness as the nose suggested but it is wrapped up in a finely balanced...
