Tasting Note:

Why oh why can't we sell the Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion wines. Year after year they produce exquisite wines from some of Bordeaux's most hallowed terroirs – and mature they are some of our favourite wines to drink. And yet commercially they remain the least sought after of the Firsts and pseudo-Firsts. Perhaps 2015 will be the vintage their fortunes change; they have made a spellbinding range. Chapelle, the second wine of La Mission Haut Brion is initially introverted, but with coaxing it reveals aromas of sweet loganberry, Asian spice, bacon and cigar smoke. The palate is really intense with saline and mineral notes interspersing the core of crème de cassis. The tannic structure really is extremely impressive; one is left with pure, silky flavours of cherry stone fruit.
