"Lots of tobacco leaf, forest floor, underbrush and red as well as black fruit aromas jump from this aromatic, seductive, open-knit La Mission. Medium to full-bodied, round, generous, lush and flattering to taste, even at this young age, it is built along the stylistic lines of the 2001 or 1999. Drink it over the next 15-20 years."
Reviewed by: Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - 91 to 94 pts

Features pure, racy, floral cassis, violet and bergamot notes, with a long, mineral-tinged finish. Very expressive, this represents a noticeable step up from the second wine in this vintage.

2013 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion Pessac Leognan (Futures)

"Taut, with a tangy edge to the red currant, damson plum and blackberry notes, framed with plum skin and blood orange accents and backed by a solid roasted apple wood edge on the finish. This has a rather obvious tannic spine but is not woody in feel. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.—Tasted non-blind."

Reviewed by: James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 90-93pts

"Barrel Sample. This is a powerful wine, with firm tannins that are well embedded in the ripe blackberry fruits. There is freshness, but the wine also has density and richness. It is a wine for medium-term aging."

2009 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Pessac Leognan

"The finest wine ever made by proprietors Daniel and Florence Cathiard, the 2009 Smith-Haut-Lafitte exhibits an opaque blue/purple color in addition to a glorious nose of acacia flowers, licorice, charcoal, blueberries, black raspberries, lead pencil shavings and incense. This massive, extraordinarily rich, unctuously textured wine may be the most concentrated effort produced to date, although the 2000, 2005 and 2010 are nearly as prodigious. A gorgeous expression of Pessac-Leognan with sweet tannin, emerging charm and delicacy, and considerable power, depth, richness and authority, it should age effortlessly for 30-40+ years. Bravo!"-Robert Parker

2013 Chateau Haut Brion Pessac Leognan (Futures)

"This has weight and density, with dark plum, raspberry coulis and red currant fruit showing well already, lined with obvious but racy and integrated tannins. The finish is long and tinged with violet, tobacco and star anise notes, with lovely energy. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.—Tasted non-blind."

Reviewed by: James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 91-94pts

"Barrel Sample. This is a concentrated wine, with a complex structure as well as a fine texture. Dark berry fruits give freshness, contrasting the dense structure of this solid wine that has been teased out of a meager vintage. This wine will age well."
