Description

93-94  James Suckling
“A solid second wine from La Mission with currants, blackberries and hints of fresh tobacco. Oyster shell as well. Full-bodied with firm and chewy yet fine-grained tannins. Driven and long.” (3/2019)

91-93  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2018 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is composed of 40.8% Merlot, 51.6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7.6% Cabernet Franc, harvested September 10 to October 2. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rocks up with ready-for-business scents of baked blueberries, raspberry compote and warm blackcurrants with touches of fungi, yeast extract, menthol and espresso plus a fragrant waft of red roses. Full-bodied, the palate has wonderful freshness lifting the black and red fruit preserves, framed by beautifully rounded tannins and finishing on a savory note.” (4/2019) Lisa Perrotti-Brown

92  Decanter
“Gorgeously finessed blueberries and blackberries are fresh and full of juice. Not for the first time tasting these 2018s, there’s the feeling that this is a 2009 but with a little more freshness. Luxurious and silky, it’s perhaps a little atypical but easy to love. 3.96pH. Drinking Window 2026 – 2040” (3/2019) Jane Anson
