Château la Mission Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is elegant and fine. It reveals notes of ripe black fruit combined with slight oaky notes and spicy notes (menthol, tobacco). The palate is fresh, subtle, mineral, gourmand, balanced, well structured, “typical”, aerial and has a beautiful silky texture and some power in the mouth. It expresses quetsche plum, black cherry and raspberry combined with hints of red fruit and blackberry. There is a slight notes of salinity on the finish. Tannins are fine, very elegant and quite supple.
