CHÂTEAU LA MISSION HAUT BRION
La Mission Haut Brion, together with Haut Brion itself, are the two 'twins' of top Bordeaux, fascinating in their differences and yet with the shared parentage of ownership and a similar appellation. Sometimes the divergence is dramatic, with deep, structured, majestic La Mission, denser than the sumptuous softness of Haut Brion, but they share the class, complexity and peaty/cigary Pessac-Léognan characteristics that draw in addicts such as ourselves. La Mission is fabulously consistent and with a wonderfully pronounced profile, married with the power to mature to perfection. It should, of course, be a First Growth and it is considered as such, always impressing in vertical tastings with its strong-flavoured impact, challenging its 'rival' at every turn. We, the consumers, want them both, to compare and contrast in consummate style.

This wonderful expression of St. Emilion, and exciting new acquisition for Domaine Clarence Dillon, is in very short supply. It is being nurtured with the utmost care and investment to produce wines that are rich, opulent and full of black fruit, with impact and definition. It will be fascinating for us all to watch them mature in bottle and see how they develop. Learning curves are rarely as pleasant!
