Lot #31. La Mission Haut-Brion 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96+ NM.
"The 2008 La Mission Haut-Brion has an open, feisty, lively bouquet with blackberry, briary, cedar, black olive and a light seaweed (Japanese nori) aroma. This is wonderful, an intoxicating bouquet. The palate is beautifully balanced with a fine bead of acidity, very focused with good weight and structure. This is a very convincing showing, at the moment more pleasurable than the 2008 Haut-Brion, just so fresh and complex, offering a discrete tertiary, smoke-tinged finish that goes on and on. One of the best 2008s out there. (Tasted at BI Wine & Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.)" Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Feb 2018
Provenance: The Foxy Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $180
