La Chapelle Haut-Brion red 2016 fragrant and complex

The Merlot (36.5%), Cabernet Franc (21.5%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (42%) plants were harvested between September 19th and October 14th. These grape varieties gave La Chappelle de La Mission it's backbone and aromatic freshness

La Chappelle La Mission Haut-Brion red 2016 is the second wine of La Mission Haut-Brion and has a deep red color. The nose of this Pessac-Leognan is somewhat closed at this stage, but still ripe. Aromas of black fruits and notes of fresh fruits display its aromatic complexity. In the mouth, the attack is juicy. The tannins are tight and give the impression of biting into the grape itself. This second wine blend is a very beautiful vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is blended of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36.5% Merlot and 21.5% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it absolutely sings of red roses, black tea and tilled black soil with a core of crushed blackberries, Morello cherries and cassis plus a hint of cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers a great intensity of ripe black berries and floral layers, framed by soft, silken tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.
