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.

Tasting notes

Beautiful, deep colour.
The nose displays fresh fruit aromas complemented by an elegant touch of oak.
The first impression on the palate is smooth and full-bodied, becoming soft and delicious with aeration.
Excellent tannic structure culminating in a beautiful long aftertaste enhanced by fruity and spicy flavours. 

The weather

 The spring of 2018 was marked by frequent stormy weather.The growing season started very well, although was later slowed down as a result of a violent hailstorm on the 26th of May. The vines nevertheless recovered fairly quickly. The month of June was relatively warm, conducive to even flowering. A hot summer followed, with little rainfall. Véraison (colour change) took place under ideal conditions. A high-pressure system set in during the month of September. The grapes were picked under clear blue skies at peak ripeness and in excellent condition.
