The aromatic intensity and complexity of a red Pessac-Léognan Second Wine

The estate

A neighbour of the legendary Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion is one of the most iconic references of Bordeaux and has been for centuries. Founded in the 16th century by the Lestonnac family, the property was then operated by the Lazarist priests. Now a property of the Domaine Clarence Dillon and Prince Robert of Luxembourg, Château La Mission Haut-Brion continues to shine among the greatest wines in the world.

The vineyard

Located in the Talence and Pessac area, Château La Mission Haut-Brion reigns over a 29-hectare vineyard, 25 of which are dedicated to red grape varieties and 4 to white grape varieties. Planted on beautiful gravel soils resting upon a subsoil of clay, sand, limestone and falun (a shell limestone), the vines of Château de La Mission Haut-Brion give rise to fine Pessac-Léognan wines.

The wine

A rare wine produced in very limited quantities, La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is the Second Wine of the estate. This exclusive wine is a superb introduction to the Château La Mission Haut-Brion style. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion takes its name from the Lazarist priests of the Mission who have cultivated the vine on the estate since the 18th century.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (42%)

Merlot (36.5%)

Cabernet Franc (21.5%).

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.
