(1981)

這支1981年出產的酒,表現出年輕帶紫色的色調。有黑布冧等香氣。它帶有各種不同的香氣,由藍莓,黑加侖子,碎石等組成,亦有煙燻的香氣。此酒酒體中等,新鮮,並仍然保持活力。

(1986)
酒色已經開始演化,不過非常漂亮。在品嘗時,能感受到它柔和圓潤口感,酒香中含豐富果香味和濃重的野味,兩者混合相當和諧。濃郁豐富的香氣,加上輕柔圓潤的口感使這款酒擁有極大陳年潛力。現在飲用已非常合適,當然如果再繼續陳年10至20年,也毫無問題。適飲期:現在至2020年


Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion wine is definitely bewitching. It possesses a great intensity that will delight you with its complexity (a mixture if red fruits) and the signature of its terroir in its empyreumatic notes (Havana cigars, chocolates, roasting, cedar wood and so on). On the palate, the wine is spherical and generous without a trace of aggressiveness. It lengthens on silky tannins, making this wine so obvious that the taster succumbs to its charm.

Country of Origin:
Bordeaux, France

Grape Varieties:
47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42.7% Merlot, 10.3% Merlot

Ageing:
18 to 22 months, 80% new oak

Tasting Notes:
(1981)
The 1981 exhibits a more youthful purple hue to its dark plum color than any vintage back to 1970. Somewhat narrowly constructed for a La Mission-Haut-Brion, it reveals plenty of incense, blueberry, black currant and crushed rock notes intertwined with a restrained, smoky character. The wine is medium-bodied, fresh and crisp with good concentration as well as a surprising youthfulness. However, the vintage’s deficiencies – a lack of heat and maturity – show up in the wine’s modest power and concentration. The 1981 does not possess the great richness, depth and intensity of the finest vintages, but it is still an outstanding effort that has aged extremely well. It could hold up for another two decades, but there is no point in deferring gratification.

(1986)
The handsome colour has already evolved some. The tasting is marked by both the great softness at the base as well as notes or scent of rather heavy wild game. The whole has a beautiful harmony. Its rich aromas, its softness, its chunkiness make a particularly rich bottle with an aptitude to age well. This wine can be drunk as of now with much pleasure but will easily age well for another 10 to 20 years. Drink : now to 2020
