Château la Mission Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is fruity, gourmand and offers a small freshness and finesse. It reveals notes of citrus (tangerine, lemon, a hint of orange) associated with a slight toasted note as well as a discreet hint of vanilla / almond and a very discreet hint of acacia flowers. The palate is fruity, gourmande, elegant, fresh and offers tension, a small acid frame (in the background), fat, suavity as well as a nice unctuous, ample and bright matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of nectarine and ripe citrus (tangerine, lemon) associated with slight notes of ripe fruit as well as small notes of exotic fruits (quenette, mango …) and a fine toasted hint on the finish. Good length and good persistence.
