Description

Its intense color stems from a deep violet. The nose begins very discretely. Then evolve, one by one, a plethora of different aromas. At the head of the troop comes raspberry followed by other flavors such as blackberry, Havana cigar, then roasted coffee and, to finish off, a very pleasant aroma of woodiness. The mouth begins with a sensation of softness, and then the wine expands to fill the entire space. From this moment on, the ripe tannins take over giving one a measure of the concentration of this wine. It is of an amazing freshness with a very good balance between alcohol and acidity. With the vintage 2007, La Mission Haut-Brion has produced a top wine of excellent quality. - Winemaker's Notes

A smooth, velvet textured wine, piled high with sweet, ripe flavors. There is fine, opulent concentration here, impressive density, and a solid, tannic core. While it is not as powerful as some vintages from this estate, it certainly suggests the ability to age 5–6 years and more. - WE93

The 2007 La Mission Haut Brion, a candidate for wine of the vintage, exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with notes of melted licorice, blueberries, cassis, burning embers, and charcoal, sweet tannin, medium to full body, a fleshy mouthfeel, and an endearing succulence as well as lushness. Already appealing, it should continue to evolve and drink well for 15+ years. It is a great success for the vintage. - WA92

Offers berry and coffee bean aromas, with hints of mahogany. Full-bodied, with a lovely silky texture and a vanilla, berry and chocolate aftertaste. Hard not to drink now. There's lots at the finish. Even a little chewy. Best after 2013. 4,500 cases made. - WS91

The Winery

In 1664, Madame de Lestonnac bequeathed the domaine of La Mission Haut-Brion to the Peres Lazaristes, a congregation founded by Saint Vincent de Paul. The "good fathers" worked to restore their property to its rightful worth. After them, the Chiapella family (owners in the 19th century) and Woltner family (owners between 1919 and 1983) never stopped improving the vineyard and modernizing the cellars. Since 1983, the Dillon family, already owner of Chateau Haut-Brion, continues the same policy under the presidency of H.R.H. Prince Robert of Luxembourg.
