Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

The new second wine of La Mission-Haut-Brion, Chapelle-Haut-Brion, is a worthy addition to the Dillon family's portfolio. The 1995 is a sleeper, and one of the better second wines of this vintage. It comes across as more extracted than the 1996, but offers a lovely, rich, medium-bodied, well-endowed personality. The wine reveals much of the character of La Mission-Haut-Brion in its sweet berry fruit intertwined with smoke, tobacco, and roasted herbs. Round, spicy, and generous, with no hard edges, it will provide ideal drinking over the next 7-8 years.

Deep ruby colour; characteristic nose of a Graves with brick flavour; sweet and beguiling on the palate with a nice finish; much better than expected

About This Producer

"What is still evident is that La Mission Haut-Brion is a wine of first-growth quality...It is unquestionably one of the world's most singular and distinctive wines." -Robert Parker, Bordeaux

Founded in the 17th century, this property has long enjoyed renown and respect. In 1919, the Woltner family acquired the estate and set it on the road to stardom. Frederic Woltner, and then later his son Henri, shaped the dense, full-bodied, fruit-rich character that was to become this chateau's signature. Then, in 1983, amidst family bickering and financial woes, the chateau was purchased by Haut-Brion (Domaine de Clarence Dillon S.A.) and Jean Delmas was placed at the winemaking helm. Considered one of Bordeaux's greatest wines, Mission Haut-Brion, with patience, provides a sumptuous and lengthy tasting experience. La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is the estate's second wine.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
