Description

The fullness and freshness of a Pessac-Léognan white wine

The estate

Neighbour to the illustrious Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion has been an iconic Bordeaux wine for centuries. Founded in the 16th century by the de Lestonnac family, the estate was subsequently administered by Lazarist priests. Now owned by Clarence Dillon and Prince Robert de Luxembourg, Château La Mission Haut-Brion continues to shine among the world's greatest wines.

The vineyard

Located in the communes of Talence and Pessac, Château La Mission Haut-Brion oversees a vineyard planted on fine gravel soils resting on a subsoil of clay, sand, limestone and falun (a shell limestone). The vines of Château de La Mission Haut-Brion produce great Pessac-Léognan wines.

The wine

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

The vintage

The winter began with high levels of rainfall, ideal for replenishing water reserves, and from February onwards mild temperatures advanced early budburst. The frost in April had a minimal impact on the vineyards, before a mild May. Flowering was uniform and of good quality. The vines withstood three waves of summer heat, supported by the expertise of the teams and the adaptation of viticultural practices. The rain on 13 August restored the vineyard. Despite their small size, the grapes were of excellent quality. Harvesting took place from 16 to 23 August for the white varieties and from 29 August to 19 September for the red varieties.

Winemaking and ageing

Ageing in barrels (19.8% new).

Blend

Merlot (55,9%)
