Lot #169. La Mission Haut-Brion 2000

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"One of the wines of the vintage, the 2000 has barely budged in its evolution since it was bottled and released in 2002. After ten years in bottle, it still reveals a dense opaque purple color along with a potentially sensational bouquet of blueberries, black currants, graphite, asphalt and background oak. Extremely powerful, full-bodied and superbly concentrated with good acidity and high but round tannins, this massive La Mission-Haut-Brion should take its place among this estate’s most hallowed vintages when it hits full maturity in another one to two decades. I was surprised by just how youthful this wine tasted at age 12. If tasted blind, I would have guessed it to be around 4 to 5 years old." Wine Advocate # 139, Feb 2002
Provenance: The Red River Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed capsules, 5 very lightly scuffed, 1 lightly scuffed, 1 very lightly damp stained, 5 very lightly bin soiled, 1 nicked labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
