Description

The freshness and aromatic intensity of a Pessac-Léognan red wine

The estate

A neighbour of the legendary Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion is one of the most iconic references of Bordeaux and has been for centuries. Founded in the 16th century by the Lestonnac family, the property was then operated by the Lazarist priests. Now a property of the Domaine Clarence Dillon and Prince Robert of Luxembourg, Château La Mission Haut-Brion continues to shine among the greatest wines in the world.

The vineyard

Château La Mission Haut-Brion reigns over a vineyard whose gravelly soils resting on a subsoil of clay, sand, limestone and falun (a shell limestone) give rise to fine Pessac-Léognan wines.

The vintage

The year 2006 was marked by shifting weather conditions, with a relatively hot and dry spring and summer, which ensured a good ripening of the grapes.

Vinification and ageing

Aged in barrels (80% new).

The blend

Merlot (59%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (40%)

Cabernet Franc (1%).

Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2006: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

The intense colour is a beautiful purple hue.

Nose

The lively and complex nose blends fruity (raspberries, blackberries) and woody (cedar) fragrances with notes of coffee and liquorice.

Palate

The full and smooth palate seduces with its fine tannins, its concentration and its exceptional freshness. A great vintage!
