Reviews of purchase La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac Leognan, 2009
Wine gorgeous, dense purple.
The taste of wine - a powerful, concentrated, lush, ripe, round tannins has mature, velvety texture. In the aftertaste felt notes of black currant and black cherry.
The aroma of wine trapped notes of ripe berries (blackberries, black currants), smoke, earth, spice, licorice, tobacco and cassis.
The wine goes well with red meat, roast goose, turkey with chestnuts, roasted woodcock, cheeses.
