Château La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc
Very beautiful, dark, intense red colour.
The nose is deep and concentrated, suggestive of very ripe grapes,
underscored by complex oaky and spicy overtones.
Starts out broad-based and juicy on the palate, becoming full-bodied,
tannic and succulent, culminating in a lovely long aftertaste.
Very pleasant flavours linger on the palate,
reminiscent of the finest vintages.
The spring of 2018 was marked by frequent stormy weather.The growing season started very well, although was later slowed down as a result of a violent hailstorm on the 26th of May. The vines nevertheless recovered fairly quickly. The month of June was relatively warm, conducive to even flowering.A hot summer followed, with little rainfall. Véraison (colour change) took place under ideal conditions.A high-pressure system set in during the month of September. The grapes were picked under clear blue skies at peak ripeness and in excellent condition.
