Reviews for 2003 Mission Haut Brion, La Bordeaux Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2006
Aromas of blackberry tobacco and hints of oak. Full-bodied with lots of silky and round tannins and a long finish. Lots going on here. Layered and powerful. Best after 2010. –JS

The 2003 La Mission Haut-Brion shows more creme de cassis, plenty of cedar wood, melted licorice and charcoal in a medium to full-bodied wine. It is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and the rest Cabernet... The 2003 La Mission Haut-Brion shows more creme de cassis, plenty of cedar wood, melted licorice and charcoal in a medium to full-bodied wine. It is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. Rustic tannins in the back knock down the ultimate pleasure, and the point score, ever so slightly, but there’s no doubting the complex, perfumey, noble aromatics this wine has managed to attain despite the staggering heat and drought in June, July and August. This has reached full maturity, but should hold nicely for another 7-10 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
