La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion
The nose displays intense cherry aromas with a touch of cocoa.
The wine starts out with a tannic texture that becomes soft and pleasantly fresh on the middle palate.
The lovely fruit flavours continue into a long finish.
2014 was marked by an extraordinary Indian summer that saved the vintage. Fine spring weather was conducive to a good start to the growing season. However, challenging summer conditions seriously slowed down ripening. Fortunately, the month of September was absolutely beautiful, with dry, extremely sunny weather accompanied by highs of close to 30°C. This superb weather, with cool night-time temperatures, enabled the grapes to ripen beautifully, and they were able to be brought into the vat house having reached a perfect level of ripeness.
