The 2020 Le Mission Haut Brion is a blend of 48.6% Merlot, 43.2% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8.2% Cabernet Franc. This Mission Haut Brion belongs to one of the most beautiful vintages ever and is a worthy successor to the 2016 and 2019 vintage and has received a score of 100/100 points from Suckling and Parker.

The wine has incredible precision with a medium to full-bodied taste with supple and soft tannins and great acidity. It is a wine of incredible focus and delineation. The wine has a deep garnet purple color and unfolds in the glass with notes of black currants, black cherries, dark chocolate, violets, tobacco leaf, forest floor and a hint of bergamot.

Neal Martin van de Wine Advocate (Parker) writes about the 2020: "The 2020 La Mission Haut-Brion is a brilliant effort that exhibits a level of balance and integration that are impressive in such a powerful young Bordeaux"
