2004 Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan, France

Tasting: Jean-Philippe Delmas explained that 69% of production at La Mission made the grade to the grand vin in 2004 compared to 60% in 2003. Super-rich, spicy fruit on the nose and with a wealth of succulent, black fruit flavours. Pessac-léognan’s classic pedigree courses through its veins. Very inviting and made in the natural, unforced style. Dry but ripe, this is fine bordeaux from a famous property that is under the same ownership as its neighbour Haut-Brion. An assemblage of 55% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.

2004 - Bordeaux

Reminiscent of 1988, a vintage where the last to pick secured the best results. A damp, cool mid-season slowed down the maturity process and resulting wines are crisp and scented rather than rich and opulent. Recent tastings indicate that 2004 marks a return to classic values of restraint and balance. In the prevailing conditions there is, inevitably, a gradient from average to good to excellent, the high points to be found in the Médoc appellations of Pauillac, Saint-Julien and Margaux. Graves did not enjoy the same success, however its top growths are poised and succulent as are the wines of Pomerol and St-Emilion. A stylish, mid-weight vintage which will give much pleasure in the years to come.
