The 2003 La Mission Haut-Brion is a large-scaled wine offering a distinctive bouquet of scorched earth, black cherry liqueur, and hints of blackberries, blueberries, graphite, and smoke. Ripe, heady, full-bodied, soft, and revealing considerable complexity, low acidity, and a broad, expansive mouthfeel, it should drink well in 2-3 years and last for two decades. Its 13% plus alcohol is normal for this hot year. Wine Advocate # 164; Apr 2006 Robert Parker 94 points; Drink 2008 - 2026

Very deep ruby, marvellously concentrated fragrance, slightly earthy and spicy, with great depth, very tightly knit, superb vineyard expression with deep, controlled tannins. Maturity: 2012-2030 Decanter # 29-2 (6/1/2004) : Highly Recommended

Wein Gourmet # 2/2004 : 96-100

Weinwisser # 6/2004 (6/28/2004) : 19/20 Maturity: 2015-2040

Fantastic aromas of violets, berries and currants with hints of wood. Full-bodied, with superrefined tannins and a lovely, silky finish. A very refined La Mission, yet powerful and structured. It builds and builds. Wine Spectator # web (4/5/2004) : 95-100
