The second wine of the Grand Vin, La Chapelle de la Mission is offered and highly recommended @ £720.00 IB per case or £360.00 IB per case of six.

Jancis MW is a big fan and awards an impressive 17.0 “Sumptuous first-growth suavity on the nose. Sinews and dry finish but a little austere. Just slightly muscular. Dry but not drying finish.”

Neal Martin awards 91-93 and describes it as “one of the most sophisticated La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion releases that I have tasted from barrel and it bodes well for the future. I expect this will nudge past the 2015 once in bottle. Let's see”

Score: 17, Jancis Robinson

The 2016 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion is a striking second wine. Medium in body, but certainly not lacking in depth, the 2016 speaks to balance and feel above all else. Gravel and floral notes lead into a core of intense dark red cherry/raspberry fruit, licorice and dried flowers. There is wonderful depth and density here, but also a refreshing sense of grace.
