Château la Mission Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is elegant, subtle, aromatic and slightly mineral. It reveals notes of citrus, exotic fruit and slight notes of nuts and flowers associated with subtle oaky notes. The palate is soft, elegant, relatively fat, fine, mineral, “typical”, harmonious, beautifully dense and quite fleshy. The mouth is slightly “perlant”. It expresses notes of white fruit and citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemon) associated with a touch of apple skin as well as beautiful  / subtle oaky notes provides roundness and comes to support the fruit. There is a slight hint of nuts on the finish. Good length and aftertaste.
