Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Cru Classe 1988


Lobenberg: Einer der wirklich großen 88er für ein langes Leben. 95/100


Wine Spectator über: Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Cru Classe

-- Wine Spectator: Iodine aromas, with tobacco, cedar and sea shells, and earth and ripe fruit underneath. Full-bodied, with slightly chewy tannins and a vanilla, berry and cherry aftertaste. Big and powerful still. I would give it a little more time to mellow. But an impressive wine for the vintage.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2010. 94/100


Galloni über: Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Cru Classe

-- Galloni: The 1988 La Mission Haut-Brion is a vintage that I have not encountered for ten years. Now at 30 years old it has a charming bouquet with scents of tobacco and cigar box infusing the black fruit, just as it did a decade ago. It is not powerful but undeniably very refined. The palate is medium-bodied with leafy black fruit infused with bay leaf, clove and black tea. Yes, it is a relatively austere La Mission compared to the succeeding two vintages, but there is a sense of effortlessness about this wine that makes you fall in love. Maybe not quite as vigorous as it was before, but you would still polish off a bottle in no time at all. Tasted at the château. 92/100
