Professional Reviews For This Wine


JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 96

Fabulous nose of spice, mushrooms, blueberries and blackberries follows through to a full body, with firm tannins and a silky tannins. This is so savory and beautiful. Best second wine ever from La Mission. Give it until 2018 to open, but hard to wait.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2010 La Chapelle de la Mission, which includes the production from the now-extinct La Tour Haut-Brion vineyard, is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, which is a high percentage for the latter grape. Fleshy, succulent and opulent along the lines of the 2009 (which did surprise me ), it is a big wine, with boatloads of glycerin and a classic Graves character of scorched earth, burning embers, charcoal, and plenty of black cherry and black currant fruit. The glycerin level is high, the fruit level impressive, and the purity and texture endearing. Drink it over the next 15 or so years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Deliciously tarry from the start, with a cauldron of steeped blackberry, boysenberry and pastis-soaked plum fruit melded to well-roasted apple wood and graphite notes. Intense and grippy, showing purity and polish. Should benefit from mid-term cellaring.

Medium red-ruby. Black cherry, licorice, minerals, mint and violet on the nose. Then almost creamy in the mouth, delivering sweet flavors of dark berries, minerals and candied violet. Some tangy red berry notes emerge with aeration, providing lift and focus, but there's an enticing plumpness of texture here. Finishes with very good length and lift, lovely balance and plenty of early appeal. (ID)

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.
