Incredible presence on this wine which beats all records, including in terms of alcohol (but this is not noticeable). This is a perfectly successful illustration of the extraordinary harmony that makes the greatest wines of the vintage so beautiful! Great entry in the mouth, with an incomparable opulence and suavity in the texture. It unfolds, continuously, a great volume in the mouth. Superb liquorice tannins and a finish of frightening complexity. One of the great Missions of history!

Viticulture

The origin of the Mission lies in a bequest made by Madame de Lestonnac to the Lazarist Fathers in the 17th century. In the 1920s, the property was acquired by Frédéric Woltner before his children sold it to the Dillon family in 1983. Located almost in the middle of the city, the vineyard covers a gravelly hillside with a sandy-clay subsoil. The density is 10,000 vines per hectare for a yield of +/- 32 hl/ha. The average age of the vines is 25 years.

Oenology

After de-stemming, the grapes are placed in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats with a capacity of 180 hl. A computer programme is used to manage the pumping over and the temperature of the must and the marc. Fermentation is carried out at 30o. The wine is aged in barrels, 100% new, for approximately 22 months. At the end of this period, the wine is fined with egg white before bottling.
