La Mission Haut Brion 2022
Pessac Léognan Rouge
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 97-99/100
The 2022 La Mission Haut-Brion is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Dark,
powerful and imposing, with compelling inner sweetness, La Mission is
positively striking. The purity of the flavors is striking, but the wine’s
statuesque personality might be even more impressive. Time in the glass
brings out all sorts of savory and mineral notes that add complexity. The
balance here is just mind-blowing. What a wine!
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 94-96+/100
A rich and muscular wine that reflects the warmth of the vintage, the 2022 La Mission Haut-Brion reveals aromas of dark berries, cherries and crème de cassis mingled with licorice, spices, incense and spring flowers. Full-bodied, broad and concentrated, it’s surprisingly lively despite an elevated pH of 4.0, exhibiting a seamless, broad-shouldered profile with an ample core of fruit framed by rich, powdery tannin. It’s a blend of 51.7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43.2% Merlot and 5.1% Cabernet Franc.
