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.

The weather

A year that will stay engraved in our memory as the year of the late spring frost; a terrible frost ravaged the vines during the night of the 20th of April (the cold persisted all night and in certain vineyards the temperature went down as far as -7°C). The buds, that were already well in advance, were totally destroyed and it was not until the end of May that the vines recovered their normal growth, causing different stages in their evolution. July and August were hot and dry. During the vintage it was hot and wet.
