Almost jammy with vanilla bean and coffee undertones. Full-bodied and very powerful with big juicy tannins and a long finish. Very big and generous for the vintage showing exceptional quality. Best after 2015. 6000 cases... Almost jammy with vanilla bean and coffee undertones. Full-bodied and very powerful with big juicy tannins and a long finish.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château La Mission Haut-Brion has a very attractive, captivating bouquet: red berry fruit, warm gravel, Hoisin and a pinch of truffle all beautifully conveyed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin that lend this La Mission such symmetry and detail. It is not a powerful wine, never pressing its foot down hard on the accelerator, but that is one of it strengths, and those black truffle and mineral notes surfacing towards the poised finish are entrancing. Classic from start to finish, the only facet that is missing is that peacock's tail on the finish. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

The rim vibrant fuchsia and violet. Thick brambly blackberry and boysenberry aromas are followed by spicy bright red cherry with hints of mandarin orange zest accented by light clove and nutmeg. From the time the wine hits the front palate it is full and balanced. Rich red and black cherries are matched by a solid tannic structure leading to a long lingering spicy fruit finish. This is better than Haut Brion. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 40% Cabernet Sauvignon 59% Merlot 1% Cabernet Franc.
