TASTING NOTES

"Lots of currants, spices and fresh herbs follow through to a full body that's tight and silky. Hints of cream and vanilla. Savory and salty. Shows structure and intensity as the second wine of La Mission. Try in 2021." JamesSuckling.com

"Lush, offering gorgeous waves of plum sauce, cassis and steeped raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors that are infused with black tea, roasted apple wood and melted black licorice. The long finish lets everything cruise through, with a seamless feel. Almost approachable because of the polish, but there's absolutely no rush here. A jaw-dropping display of powerfully rendered fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2020 through 2035. 4,100 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Composed of 30% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion opens with an earthy nose of mossy bark, fragrant soil and fallen leaves over a core of red and black currants, bay leaves and menthol plus a waft of violets. Medium to full-bodied, it has compelling restraint and elegance with soft tannins and great freshness, finishing on a mineral note. Possessing the spirit and many of the signature hallmarks of its big brother, this second wine of La Mission Haut-Brion is certainly nothing to sneeze at!" Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2015 La Chapelle de la Mission has a high-toned bouquet with iodine and light cassis scents that gradually opens with time. The palate is sweet and chewy on the entry, clean and pure with a fine line of acidity and a slightly gravelly finish that lingers in the mouth. Quality winemaking here is no surprise coming from the hands of Jean-Philippe Delmas. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Very rich, almost raisiny nose. Lots of (dried) fruity appeal. Pretty tough dried-grape impression on the finish. Not one of the most fluid wines from this stable! A bit of heat on the end. This wine may always be a bit of an anomaly." JancisRobinson.com
