La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion
Produced in small quantities, this second wine is a gateway to the world of Château La Mission Haut-Brion. Its name is a nod to the chapel of La Mission Haut-Brion, built by Lazarist priests in 1698.
A warm spring brought on early budding. Through June, the weather was very good. The flowering was uniform. After a bout of cold weather August was pretty warm. August makes the must is a local adage. The grapes were remarkably healthy and ripened well. The rainy weather with one or two storms did not affect them at all.
