The 2005 La Mission Haut-Brion is pure perfection. It has an absolutely extraordinary nose of sweet blackberries, cassis and spring flowers with some underlying minerality, a full-bodied mouthfeel, gorgeously velvety tannins (which is unusual in this vintage) and a long, textured, multi-layered finish that must last 50+ seconds. This is a fabulous wine and a great effort from this hallowed terroir. Drink this modern-day legend over the next 30+ years. Only 5,500 cases were produced of this blend of 69% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc.
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #219, Jun 2015)
The Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2005 has a really quite fabulous bouquet with powerful, very well defined blackberry, cedar, tobacco, fig and menthol scents that jostle for attention. The palate is medium-bodied with fine and supple tannin. This is becoming quite a savoury La Mission with savoury elements infusing the red and black fruit, touches of sage and juniper flourishing on the finish that is so refined you could actually drink hits now. This is a quite brilliant La Mission Haut-Brion that will cruise at a rarefied height.

Dark, youthful red; still relatively closed, but with a dense blackcurrant fruit clear; full, concentrated fresh, firmly but finely tannic; rich yet restrained, such a seductive abundance of ripe red and blackcurrant flavour, crisply defined, clearly mineral tinged, long to taste, subtly mouthcoating, with terrific fruit and scent, and
just a touch of alcoholic warmth on the finish. A full, very fine and most complete LMHB. 2022-45+.
