Tasting Notes

Vinous – 94

The 1999 La Mission Haut-Brion has long been one of the “dark horses” from the estate, sandwiched between the 1998 and 2000 and unfairly overlooked. This bottle reveals an intense bouquet that has far more chutzpah than I presupposed. Black fruit, charcoal, singed leather and just a subtle hint of game are all delivered with impressive definition. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, and a marine influence is more noticeable than a decade ago when I last tasted it. While it has not quite lost its rather conservative and well-behaved finish, it is a thoroughly enjoyable La Mission Haut-Brion that might represent better value than more feted vintages. Tasted from an ex-château bottle at the estate. [Neal Martin, 10/09/2019]

Robert Parker – 91

Made in a lighter style, the fully mature 1999 reveals notes of beef blood, roasted herbs, black truffles, damp earth and black currants intermixed with hints of espresso and spice box. This medium-bodied, velvety textured, lush La Mission should hold nicely for a decade in a cold cellar. [Robert Parker, 01/08/2012] – 17.0

Low-key nose, really quite uncommunicatively dry tannins. Pretty hard work at this stage. Not charming. Maybe this needs more time but it’s so uncompromising at the moment. Odd because Haut-Brion usually opens out earlier than most first growths. One of the most youthful 1999s. [25/06/2009]

Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025
