La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion
Beautiful dark red colour.
The nose shows overtones of ripe black fruit, especially blackcurrant.
The wine starts out full-bodied and soft, going on to reveal slightly austere, but quite rich tannin.
The aftertaste is very velvety. Reflecting the finest qualities of Cabernet Sauvignon tamed by barrel ageing,
the beautiful tight structure guarantees a wonderful tasting experience in years to come.
The year 2015 appears to be the warmest and sunniest, throughout our country, since the beginning of meteorological statistics. A long heat wave and dry period allowed to achieve excellent flowering conditions until the arrival, in August, of miraculous rains. This rain enabled the vines to maintain the necessary water reserves and to provide requisite nourishment for perfect ripeness. The harvest began in September under a clear blue sky. Thanks to this ideal weather, we were able to wait for optimum ripeness for each grape variety. All the conditions are there to allow 2015 to join the greatest vintages of Bordeaux.
