This has to be one of the greatest wines ever to have come out of Bordeaux. The combination of La Mission's natural inclination towards power and character with the force and concentration of the vintage is almost explosive! I would certainly put this wine into the category of 'finest of the century' - and it will continue to shine into the next. A very recent bottle was utterly impressive, with enormous impact.
