TASTING NOTES

"Currant and flower aromas galore. Very aromatic. Full-bodied yet tight and dense on the palate. A solid core of fruit and savory acidity. Very long and pretty. Drink in 2021." JamesSuckling.com

"Dense and muscular in feel, with a loamy edge complementing the core of steeped plum, black currant and fig compote notes. Lots of tobacco and roasted cedar details fill in on the energetic finish. Best from 2019 through 2026. 4,000 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Today, the 2014 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion is powerful, structured and also a touch compact, with a bit less apparent breadth than it showed from barrel. Smoke, tobacco, licorice, cedar, French oak and dark stone fruit notes struggle to fully emerge. Today the tannins are especially forbidding. There is good energy and tension in the glass. Perhaps it is the high %age of Cabernet Franc that is shutting the wine down. The 2014 is very pretty, but it is not an especially forthcoming second wine. Even so, the bright floral and red-fruit-toned notes make me think it will drink nicely for a number of years. The blend is 45 % Merlot, 31 % Cabernet Franc and 24 % Cabernet Sauvignon."

"The 2014 La Chapelle de la Mission offers light brambly red berry fruit on the nose mixed with cedar and bay leaf notes. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, plenty of pretty red fruit, light on its toes and yet delivering a satisfying and persistent finish that draws you back for the next sip. This has clearly improved since I tasted it just after bottling. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
